A Melbourne mum has welcomed the birth of what some a dubbing a “super baby”, weighing more than six kilograms.
Baby Brian Junior was born naturally at 40 weeks and five days at the Mercy Hospital on Tuesday morning.
“I dreamed of a little fat baby,” mum Natashia Corrigan told 7 News. “I’ve always wanted a little fat baby and I’ve got a big one!”
Doctors told Corrigan her baby was growing on the heavier side, but the birth still came as a shock to the mother who already has two children.
“I think I was in a bit of shock because the birth was natural and I only had gas so I was still in a bit of shock just from that,” Corrigan said.
Nursing staff told the publication Brian Jnr is already double the size of the average Australian baby.
“I’ve been waiting a long time for today,” Corrigan added.
“The power of positive thinking during birth, be positive, breath deep.”
