I note that a Russian lady has given birth to her 12th baby. That’s a feat in itself, but this freaky monster, err lovely girl, weighed in at a part-stretching 17lbs! 7.7Kgs in new money. Youch.
Luckily for the mother the baby was delivered by Caesarean section.
The thing that struck me as quite cute though was that the Russian social services gave her a washing machine. I’m sure that’s the first thing you’d want after carrying and giving birth to a small elephant! Aspirin, morphine, a wheelchair, large amounts of vodka, burgers for life for your huge bundle of joy. Then give me the washing machine.
Anyway, good luck to them. Must be fun for their neighbours though 🙂
