Amy Smit, 27, and her husband Zac, 28, from Cheddington, Buckinghamshire, were shocked when they first laid eyes on their son Zagrys – known as Zeik – who was born on 25th March.
Mum-of-two Amy said it took two people to lift Zeik out of her during the Caesarean section birth because of his hefty size, almost twice as big as the average new born.
The couple couldn’t believe their eyes when midwives lifted their baby up for them to see for the first time.
Amy, who is also mum to two-year-old Lola, said: ‘He was so big that it took two people to lift him out.
‘There were all these really small ladies around me, and I heard one of them saying, ‘I need some help, he’s enormous’.
‘We knew he was going to be a tall baby, because all the scans showed he was quite long, and both Zac and I are around the six-foot mark.
‘He didn’t even fit on the scales when they went to weigh him, he was too long and wide. They had to make a makeshift plank thing to balance him on them.’
Amy added: ‘We had bought clothes for up to three months, because we expected him to be tall.
‘But none of them fit him. I had to send Zac out to buy six-nine month clothes for him.’
Amy and Zac’s first daughter, Lola, was also a big baby when she was born in September 2018, weighing in at 9lbs 2oz.
