Patricia Clark gave birth to her second child in 1983, in the maternity ward of Community Memorial Hospital in New Jersey. Giving birth to big size babies in her family was pretty common so she expected her baby to to be decent-sized. However, Kevin Robert Clark surprised everyone when he came to the world weighing more than 16 pounds

Kevin’s parents were worried about the baby’s health since he was double the normal size of a newborn, but doctors checked him out and reassured them he was perfectly healthy. His parents struggled a bit with the fact he didn’t fit into his crib or his baby clothes. Further details of the incredible birth are noted here in an archived report in The New York Times

Kevin started out big and kept getting bigger. When he began junior high, he was already six foot five inches tall. Now age 36, he stands six feet nine inches tall and weighs around 300 pounds.

Kevin likes to make jokes about his size, which has turned heads and attracted stares his entire life. He tells people he’s five foot twenty-one, and when they ask if he plays basketball he asks if they play miniature golf.

Instead of going into basketball or football like everyone expected, Kevin joined the Air Force and then became a military policeman in Texas for a time before returning to school to get his MBA. He currently resides with his six-foot-tall wife, Jenna, and a Great Dane, as reported here at the New York Post. He enjoys hunting and fishing.

Typically, a newborn full-term baby weighs between five pounds eight ounces and eight pounds thirteen ounces, says KidsHealth.org.
