How old would you say the baby in these pictures is? 6 months? 10 months? A year old? Well, he might look big, but baby Jack Castle is just 10-weeks-old.

Big baby Jack weighed a whopping 11lbs 11oz when he was born on February 19 – 2 weeks past his due date. “I started showing when I was about 4 weeks pregnant,” new mum Diana, 29, said. “Everyone thought I was having triplets.

“Jack just kept growing and growing – by the end I was massive.”

And doctors couldn’t believe the size of Jack when he was born. “One of them said I was having a boy ready for primary school,” Diana said. “He was massive.”

When Diana brought Jack home in Canterbury, Kent, his dad Ben, 33, had to rush out to buy new clothes – because none of the 0-3 month baby clothes would fit.

By his 10-week check-up, Jack weighed 17lbs – about the average for a 12-month-old baby.

“Lifting Jack up is like a workout, he’s huge,” Diana said. “We’ve got no idea why Jack’s so massive – he’s not fat or anything, he’s just my big beautiful boy.”

When Diana was pregnant, she said the size of her baby was making her uncomfortable. “I did nothing different to anyone else, but at four months I was so uncomfortable and barely fitted in our bed,” she said. “At 37 weeks, I was so frustrated that we tried everything to get him out early, curries, raspberry tea, castor oil, walking and sex, but nothing worked.

“My belly was constantly moving and I felt like someone was having a disco in there. 

“I’m not sure but I think I’ve got Britain’s biggest baby.”
