In 1983, 24-year-old Patricia Clark gave birth to her second child in the maternity ward of Community Memorial Hospital, located in New Jersey. Big babies seemed to run in her family, so she was expecting a decent-sized newborn. To everyone’s surprise, Kevin Robert Clark weighed in at slightly more than 16 pounds at birth.
Kevin’s parents were concerned about his health because he was larger than the average infant, but after a checkup, doctors convinced them that he was in perfect health. The fact that he didn’t fit into his crib or his newborn clothes caused his parents some anxiety. Here, in a story that has since been preserved, are more specifics about the amazing birth.
Kevin grew steadily in size after beginning large. He was already six foot five inches tall when junior high school started. He is currently 35 years old, six feet nine inches tall, and about 300 pounds.
Kevin enjoys making jokes about how big he is and has always been the center of attention. When people ask him if he plays basketball, he replies that he’s five feet twenty-one and suggests they play miniature golf instead.
Kevin joined the Air Force, worked as a military policeman in Texas for a while, and then decided to pursue his MBA instead of playing basketball or football like everyone had anticipated. He currently lives with his Great Dane and six-foot-tall wife, Jenna. He likes fishing and hunting.
A newborn, full-term infant typically weighs between five and eight pounds, thirteen ounces.
