Possibly the largest baby in California was born Monday at 6:19 a.m - little (or, not so little) Matthew Anthony Maldanado was born via c-section, weighing in at 14 pounds, 3.6 ounces. Matthew's parents were understandably stunned. Matthew's dad noted that his wife could barely believe the situation. See a video about this 14 pound baby. Don't feel too bad for Matthew's mama. Back in 2009, an Indonesian woman gave birth to 19-lb baby! Now that's big. I'm happy that Matthew and his mama appear to be healthy (from reports) but I do want to take this time to point out that bigger isn't necessarily better. Especially when it comes to babies. Often, larger babies are due to a mama having gestational diabetes. Learn more:
