The baby was born just after Chinese New Years, and this is the year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar.
The baby boy, named Chun Chun, which probably translated to Chub Chub, was born in central China on Saturday, with state media reporting the birth could be breaking a new record for the country’s heaviest baby.
Baby Chun Chun & Mother were both in excellent condition in a local hospital in Xinxiang City, Henan Province.
Chun Chun was born just after the start of the Lunar New Year, with the Year of the Dragon considered a particularly auspicious time to have a child.
Han Jingang, Chun Chun’s Father explains it all,”My wife was no different from other pregnant women. She ate and drank normally as she should. But she’s given birth to such a big, fat son. Today is the first day of spring in the Chinese calendar and he’s a ‘dragon baby’.”
