Teresa Alejandra Cruz is 23. When she was 16 she gave birth to a 11.46-pound infant. That was nothing compared to this: Cruz's latest baby is even bigger.

An Associated Press report has Antonio Vasconcelos' weight listed at 14.5 pounds -- a runt compared to the world record of 22.5 pounds, but still one big baby. The AP reports:
"We haven't found any abnormality in the child, there are some signs of high blood sugar, and a slight blood infection, but that is being controlled so that the child can get on with his normal life in a few more days," Narciso Perez Bravo, the hospital's director, said.
The baby is 22 inches long.
