Here's how its being reported by the TEXAS new site KLTV.com
JaMichael Brown, was born at 9:05 a.m., he weighed 16 pounds, 1 ounce — about 4 pounds more than doctors predicted.
The baby is the largest born at Good Shepherd Medical Center. Hospital officials believe he may be the largest baby ever born in Texas, but it will take several days of combing state records to make that announcement official.
“We’re just amazed,” Johnson said. “I can’t believe he’s that big. A lot of the baby clothes we bought for him will have to be returned. They’re already too small for him to wear.”
The baby also emerged with a full head of hair, and the newborn nursery didn’t have diapers big enough to fit him, she said.
JaMichael’s father said the nurses told him the baby is a size most infants don’t attain until they are between 3 and 6 months old.
JaMichael is Johnson’s fourth child. He joins older sisters who are 18, 16 and 10.
Johnson had gestational diabetes during her pregnancy, and JaMichael is spending his first few days of life in the neonatal intensive care unit in order to regulate his blood sugar. The baby otherwise seems to be basically healthy, she said.
Wow, I bless the family and hope nothing but the best
I bet her *** will never be the same :o)
It's the diet. Give up all the processed foods, the processed meats, the fast food, the soda pop and sweetened drinks, black people, because they are KILLING us!
HEY NOW IM IN EAST TEXAS MY HOME TOWN, IT IS ALL OVER THE NEWS, WATCH ME ON YOUTUBE MY NAME IS THETJ0711
Bless his little heart he's a big one, and the mom look like she unconscious...
wow i didn't evan know that was possible .
That is so sad
I hope it was a C-Section....
dang. Did she push him out?
thats why your supposed to eat healthy when your pregnant.
hope nuthin more crazy happens to them...
This is ridiculous. I bet the child will have her effed up eating habits too. Black people, obesity is not cute or healthy. Give the kids a chance at least!!
I bet her cuca looks like the entrance to the bat cave after all of that!
I hope she had a C-section!!! That would KILL her p*ssy
That baby is a Nephilim
for everybody who keep saying stuff about her size my sister had a 10 pound baby and she skinny and most diabetics have big babys but most skinny women do to and I pray that the mom and baby enjoy a happy life together
that man has kids 18 16 and 10 why in the hell does he wanna start over with a newborn WTF im on a countdown and this *** starts over foh
Aw poor baby already have diabetes not good
She looks weak and exhausted from that pregnancy with her son,if I was her I would have my tubes tied. JaMichael is a huge baby,i heard he measured two feet long. His size and her being a diabetic may have been why the doctors had to perform an emergency c-section.
Awwwww poor baby dats sad. But look at mama she big too. Dats who he got it from. Cuz dad aint big.
whoa! i bet her *whoo whoo* is messed up! but i hope that baby will be ok.
now i can see why cuz look at his mama ***!!!!!! Lay off them popeyes mm mmmmm!!!!! You got to execise, at least do some walking you know. and most of all try your best to eat right especially during the time of pregancy HELLO....
THE MOTHER ISN'T HEALTHY EITHER. SMH...THAT'S WHY.
the baby hasn't been diagnosed with diabetes yet! just high blood sugar at birth like most large infants have. don't put that on that baby MTO just for a good headline.
He is too cute!!! I love fat babies!!!
OMG! how in the hell do u give birth to an obese baby never knew a baby can weigh that much @ birth wow. best wishes and prayers.
her vagina must be ripped to shreds!!! DANG.. *cringes*
NO ceiling NO walls lol!!
MTO IS LYING I SAW IT ON THE NEWS.THE BABY DOESNT HAVE DIABETES STOP TRYING TO ADD ON...#TELL THE TRUTH
..yea..people need to be much more careful of how they eat and workout while they're preggo..just bc ure preggo doesn't mean pig out on sugars and fatty meats *** greasy stuff..take care of urself and ur baby..I saw a baby pass in the ***.I.C.U. that had diabetes and was obese and that's sad..I pray that this baby makes it and gets in better health before he starts school and is teased bc of his weight..smh
..and I'm pretty positive that she had to get a c-section......#duh
@ myxy kill yourself for that ignorant *** comment..o, and I think you meant *knew* :)
Why do us Blacks have to put that *** Ja in front of a normal name? Jamicheal, Jamarcus, Jakita? That Shizzle just sound stupid and almost guarantee are sons and daughters not get a second interview for a job!
I knew it was black too cause his name is Jamicheal! Dumb Shizzle
She had gestational diabetes meaning, THE MOTHER had diabetes while she was
pregnant. A lot of expectant moms become diabetic, it's just as common as Iron
deficiency!! In all honesty, her weight maybe affected 2% of the baby's weight, if
that!! And all that sugar is because she became diabetic!!! Her sugar levels were
probably off the chart!!
Gestational diabetes is really common, one can do everything correct and still end up with it.
I just had a baby he weighs that much at 4 1/2 months. My bf just had a baby that
was born 10lbs and I thought that was a bit much. The baby had problems but is
doing fine plus the baby will probably not have that much weight gain as it gets
older in the next few months...and c-section had to be done...the baby prob had
high bp along with the diabetes...
To the dumb *** on here...she had a C-section. There's no why he passed through her birth canal that big!
BIG BABY HE WILL GROW NORMALLY...
even non gestational diabetic women have big babies just not that big. hopefully the baby doesn't end up diabetic
Glad little man will be alright and just thinking about a baby being 16# at birth make me want 2 get my tubes tied and i don't even have any-
And all that sugar is because she became diabetic!!! Her sugar levels were
probably off the chart!!
Hey yall, my girfriend bid on a SONY LAPTOP for $67.00 and got it shipped next
day. Her momma sold that beh for for $500. Help all ya peoples out for real
Ugh black folks giving these kids ghetto names. Anyway, I hope she's able to adequately care for him, otherwise I wil adopt him.
God bless that baby he is too cute I just wanna squeeze him. Mama better start lifting weights cause that baby is going to be killing her back
I BET HER VA-JAY-JAY LOOK LIKE A BIG NASTY WET BOOGER
Everybody commenting on this story sound like real idiots, if you read it from the right source and not listen to everything MTO has to say. You'll be smart. The mother had Gestational diabetes, and the effects of that results in a large baby. SMH. I've been diabetic since I was 8yrs old, now 23 and my child was born at 9pounds. Note to self she is healthy and not obese. Get it together ppl. So quick to judge and don't know the story.
Thank God the baby is ok. Oan:I hope she didn't have him vaginally.
I saw a 19lbs baby when my lil brother(who was 11.6)was born. He'll more than likely get healthy in the long run
That baby walked out as big as he is.. Thank God both of them are well
FOLLOW ME @tamilibestoned and @BoiBryENT #TFB #wefollowback
#promo and #*** #teamfollowback
***....MY LIL GIRL WAS 4 1/2 LBS
ACTUALLY, IF YOU READ THE CORRECT NEWS REPORT, THE BABY'S SUGAR LEVELS WERE ACTUALLY LOW.
Beautiful Baby but MTO why are yall all in the womans pregnancy!
And of course she had a c-section~~~ no one can push a 16 pounder out without ripping thier asswhole all the way up to their back and beyond!
omg! thats crazy..
Omg he a big boy glad is he's ok tho and glad the mother ok too
Thats all that Cornbread, Collard and sweet potato pie. On top of extra sgar sweet tea
for the ones talkin sh*t about her eatin habits....... People with uncontrolled diabeties durin pregnancy babies are born larger becuz of da high blood sugar........ When the mothers blood sugar is high the baby will make more insulin and dat make the baby grow larger and faster then normal..... So stfu and stop talkin about a new born dam baby.... Smfh @ yall grown aszes wanna sit here and talk sh*t about a damm baby
Everythings bigger in texas......
Will the clown of this site please *** up ItsReallyTooMuch. I am aware of the fact that you work for this site and must generate "hits," but please do not do it at the expense of a small, innocent baby--now be the man you professed to be and lay off people who can't defend themselves--jump me if you want to jump somebody, but leave the baby out of your circus show. ***, I got one better: go fight the KKK.
Women need to stay away from that processed/fried food and over-the-counter drugs while pregnant!
Poor kid. I hope his mother takes this as a lesson and changes the eating habits in that household.
Nephilim lmao that's very funny but also very true.
She'll be walking like Mariah was..all bent the he!! over but Im pleased lil man is doing well
I would never ever want *** again.....E V E R
Why do y'all have 2 be so *** ignorant?? God bless the family and the baby and
hope they are doing well. MTO y'all are some *** PIGS!!
I cant believe how cruel ppl on here can be....i hope the baby is okay....and whoever said they would never have *** again after that...i agree lol
His mama just gave birth! How do y'all know how big she is? Stupid ***.
okay first of all we are not God so why you judging this woman for one. secondly the baby yes he is big I get that but we should be praying for them both.
and what is the difference if he and the mother is black and she has diabetes yeah there are studies I know about how certain things are killing the blacks. but I knew some people that was white that had the same problem but you do not hear any one saying anything about them. we need to stop putting each other down and start lifting each one up and then if they do not understand or know what is good for them we need to show them in love not
I think its one of the saddest things when newborns have complications. I hope time spent and steady monitoring of his bc/sugar level helps him to live as normal a life as possible.
oops not bc but glc
Well........ he's ***. It's bad enough bad eating habits are in his household before he's born but he's actually born with problems so visible. I feel so bad for that baby.
She gave birth to a toddler. He looks 3 years old.
I pray that the baby is healthy enough to survive infancy, grow and develop, and live a healthy life and all that good stuff... Now with that being said, here's my question. Did she pass that baby vaginally and if so did they have to cut her r not? And did she need the needle.
On a brighter note: one of the largest babies, if not largest at his birth, in TX history was Herman Johnson. Who grew to be 6'8 350 and played LT at LSU, and I believe is (more than likely is) in the NFL. So if the kid grows up healthy and has a little athletic ability theres a job he'll qualifies for
For all the people that have something negative to say about the mother it doesnt matter how big she was or what she ate when she was pregnant she had diabetes which can cause a high birth weight... what does her color or the babies name have to do with anything??? It could have been a 30 year old white woman that was skinny would you have the same thoughts??? People are so *** rude, why does she have to talked bad about because she had a big BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY REGARDELSS OF HIS WEIGHT HE'S FINE BESIDE HAVING LOW SUGAR!!! TO ANYBODY WHO HAS SOMETHING NEGATIVE SAY GO KILL YA SELF!!!
ugh yall sound so *** stupid!!! yall are really *** me off... For the last time yall should be praying for the family it doesnt matter what she ate or how much if he doctor thought she was obese or eating to much he would have told her and im pretty sure she would have done what she needed to do for the health of her child!!! God has a plan for her and her son!!! and he'll probably grow up to be a star for all yall know then yall gonna be off his *** dumb ***!!!!
SOME OF YOU BLOGGERS NEED TO PICK UP A BOOK. GESTATIONAL DIABETES CAN AFFECT ANY RACE REGARDLESS OF WEIGHT. YOU STUPID *** *** CAN COME UP HERE AND COMMENT BUT CAN'T BING A DISEASE. UGHH
wow now that's a big kid
She probably had gestational diabetes, its a condition you can get while pregnant especially if diabetes runs in your family. it causes babies to be big. also she is an older woman so that made her at risk to have more complications...
THAT IS A BIG BABY
@sexishavonne, they have an 18 year old -- AN 18 YEAR OLD AND STILL TALKING THAT 'he's my fiance' ***! black people are idiots. Three daughters, what kind of example is this setting for them? 10 to 1 they're not married because mama gets better government benefits being unmarried. She gave him four children, the first three daughters, and she was never good enough to marry -- or he wasn't good enough for her. Black people are trifling.
@DEJIA, hammer the mama (and the daddy) because the baby is an innocent in all this. And the father is stupid enough to fall for the Today Show's *** about how his son obviously being in sports. Hey, pops, why not buck the ghetto stereotypes and talk about how no your kid is going to be a rocket scientist. The father's slow, the mother's a hoodrat, and those children are fracked.
@ JLoveGA, you said "I just had a baby he weighs that much at 4 1/2 months. My bf just had a baby that was born 10lbs and I thought that was a bit much" -- you just had a baby, and your boyfriend just had a baby by another woman? please tell me that was all just an understandable unfortunate mix of grammar typos.
That happened with my son. He was 12lbs. He was the biggest ever born at that hospital. But he didn't have anything wrong with sugar. The mother probably had gestational diabetes. I hope the baby is fine.
Finally somthing interesting on the ghetto site..I will pray for this family ***..She look so tired.
And for those of you going off about how she ate, diet has nothing to do with gestational diabetes. The only thing I could tolerate was fruits veggies and [EXPLETIVE] throughout my whole pregnancy. And my son still came out huge.
okay, that child looks like he walked out of her vagina on his own. gosh ***! she's going to be healing from that c-section for a looooong time. once again, ***!!!!!
Well I draw the line when it comes to bad mouthing the kids wow who raised some of u ppl...happy my parents took extra time in the rearing dept....but considering how big the baby was I'm almost certain she didn't qualify for the traditional bikini cut & had to get the old school cut up/ down stomach... pray they both have a healthy recovery
Oh & lastly I pray that they stick to the diet when baby boy get home bcuz u know how we can be sometimes with our own rules when the baby 3days old adding extra cereal saying that milk not cutting hopefully they want start feeding him cornbread and table food on his arrival home
WTF was she eating during her pregnancy
i had to erase what i said about this woman, because it was purely hateful & i'm trying to refrain from making hateful comments about people even if they do ring true. however, i think it is totally self-involved that women eat foods that are high in sodium, sugar and caloric value when they are pregnant. at your prenatal checkups, the physician's even go as far as giving you a list of HEALTHY things to eat during your pregnancy...it's not fair to the baby that their little bodies have to be polluted with garbage while inside their mother's womb. you people in here are bogus if you think this
that bay is gonna have alot of problems
follow me on twitter. i follow back
cont'd--woman was health conscious during her pregnancy. her baby being born this large was not some type of "freak of nature" incident nor was it a coicidence....you can flip the coin any way you like, but there isn't no denying the truth- this woman in all liklihood had poor eating habits while pregnant & this infant's massive birth weight was a product and a reflection of those unhealthy eating habits. he is a beautiful nonetheless, but let's just call a spade a spade. diabetes & high blood pressure are a black person's disease!
she def had to been eattin everything that wasnt on the list to eat while prego.
this is so sad smh
FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @EMPRESS_MJ
wow....tell me she gotta c-section lol
so funny, I stopped to talk to my moma & she mentioned this. my first job out of school was @ good shepard I got my $$ up & said good riddance. longview is a crazy place to live . if u read terry mcmillian 1st book moma she describe longview to the t. xoxox to my kra zay *** family!! I hate u missed the reunion but my hubby broke his neck & arms ( I kno (
DA CHICK MUST WAS LIVIN *** McDonald NEAR A CANDY STORE
@ SweetestGirl Branu, its not entirely true about her eating unhealthy. Any woman can get gestational diabetes. And shes older, so shes higher risk. You cant automatically assume she ate unhealthy. I had gestational diabetes, but I didnt eat junk. I lost too much weight because I couldnt tolerate anything but fruits and veggies. And my son still came out huge.
thats not a baby thats a T O D D L E R !! looks like he gon get up walk to the kitchen and get him a snack !! I love babies and he is no exception !! & he got the nerve to have a head full of hair !! aaaaaawwwww!!!!!!
You ignorant people who believe the baby has diabetes are just not knowledgeable about gestational diabetes at all.... skinny women with a perfectly healthy diets can get it, and it does not mean that the baby gets diabetes, diabetes is not contagious nimrods!
she had a baby Huey.I hope he's healthy 4 the rest of his life.Ignorance runs rampant on this site,smh
While gestational diabetes can affect any pregnant woman, including skinny women...women who are obese are at a higher risk of getting it. Even more interesting is that one of the risks of having gestational diabetes is giving birth to big *** babies...which is what happened in this case
Why do black people give their children these ghetto names? Jamichael?!? Really? Poor kid would be
discriminated against 18 years from now when he starts sending out resumes.
It looks like the mom had an unhealthy diet during the last nine months and beyond. Put down the sodas
and fried chicken people, go to wholefoods and eat a salad instead!
Sad and trif *** mom! They are siiting there looking dumb as hell! Poor baby is going to have health problems!
that man has kids 18 16 and 10 why in the hell does he wanna start over with a newborn WTF im on a countdown and this [EXPLETIVE] starts over foh
Preach! Their kids are almost grown, enjoy the rest of your life and grandkids! Get a dog.
its called gestational diabetes...regardless of the mother her body produces more insulin than it should which can cause rapid growth of a child...it can lead to the child having diabetes but it doesnt happen often...so please out of respect dont bash her bash mother nature
Its not her fault its gestational diabetes.
DANGGGGGGGGGGGG WHAT IS WRONG DIS P3OPL3 NOW AT DAYZZZ
There are a lot of idiots commenting. The mother being diagnosed with diabetes while pregnant doesn't have anything to do with her "eating sugar and carbs". Your body changes drastically when you are pregnant. Your hormones, insulin etc are elevated. No, the child will NOT be born diabetic because the mother is. My husband's mother found out she was diabetic while pregnant and ended up having a stillborn child because of it. It's a very dangerous situation, therefore, people *** be joking about it.
Some of ya'll dumb *** should've paid attention in school..whether your fat or skinny does not decide if you will have diabetes or not..you can have it regardless..when your pregnant your body changes drastically..grow the f**k up
Eww.. Thats Just Nasty! I Bet Her *** Is All Stretched Out & ***!
that is gross.
that baby looks gross and his obese mom looks gross.
