10. Carmelina Fedele
Carmelina Fedele is a name pop culture journalists don’t know if to love or hate.
The Italian mother from Aversa, Italy delivered the world’s heaviest baby. Although the record succeeded in becoming a Guinness World Record, we lack any further information about what happened to the parent and her infant.
Weighing 10 kg, baby Fedele must have been quite a heavy burden. Science still doesn’t hold an answer to why some children are born that way. A healthy weight is one between 2.5kg and 5kg.
As it often happens, we lack reliable evidence from the 1955 birth. The only thing we can do is trust the Guinness official that had the misfortune of traveling to the peninsula with a certified scale.
Something tells us the local Mafia bribed him with more than spaghetti to close its eyes at baby Fedele having stones in his diaper.
