SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) -- A woman in northeastern Brazil has given birth to what one doctor called a "giant baby," a boy weighing 16.7 pounds (7.57 kg).

Francisca Ramos dos Santos, 38, gave birth to the healthy boy named Ademilton on Tuesday at a hospital in Salvador, 900 miles (1,450 km) northeast of Sao Paulo.

He was the largest baby born at the Albert Sabin Maternity Hospital in its 12-year history, the hospital said.

"Obviously the baby was born by Caesarean section," hospital director Rita Leal said. "Both mother and baby are doing just fine."

Ademilton "could truly be considered a giant baby, for he was born weighing what a six-month-old-baby normally weighs," pediatrician Luiz Sena Azul told the Correio da Bahia newspaper.

Santos has four other children -- ages 9, 12, 14, and 15 -- who were born weighing between 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg) and 11 pounds (5 kg).

"She knew Ademilton would be a big baby, but not this big" Leal said. "She, her husband and the hospital staff were caught by surprise."

The average weight for newborns in Brazil is 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg) for boys and 6.6 pounds (3 kg) for girls.

Gosh that is a big baby. My biggest was 8 pounds. My aunt had a big baby just under 14 pounds due to the fact she had developed diabetes during her pregnancy and she hadnt been going to regular dr appointments as it was her 5th baby. She figured she new everything. Anyway she delivered naturally and because we are from a small town they dont give epidurals here. You can only get gas here nothin else. The baby was the size of a 3/4month old. But gosh 16 pounds thats alot.
