New Delhi: In a first, a 19-year-old woman from Karnataka has given birth to a baby girl weighing 6.8 kilos-perhaps the heaviest girl ever born in the world.

The woman named Nandini, delivered her first child in a government hospital in Hassan city of Karnataka state.

Doctors at the hospital were a bit concerned about the mother as she weighs 94 kg and was 5 feet and 9 inches tall. She also had diabetes and the experts at the hospital feared that the baby might be diabetic.

Thankfully, the baby turned out to be healthy. An average baby weighs 3.4 kg at birth which makes this baby girl twice the size 

This baby girl has beaten the previous record of a baby boy who weighed 6.7 kg at birth.
