16 lb. baby biggest ever born in California

Posted: Updated:
CALIFORNIA - Calling this baby "big" isn't an insult; it's a fact.  Born in August he now holds the record of biggest baby ever in California, weighing in at a whopping 16 lb. 1.8 oz.

His mother is Samoan and his father is Tongan.

Now, at 5 months old the family's home is full of formula boxes and diapers designed for kids three times his age. 

He began eating cereals at 3 months old and his two brothers call him a superhero.

The family went public after seeing a story on the news about a 15 pound baby being named the largest ever in the state.
