LONDON, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- A mother in England says she is done having children since her latest weighed in at 13 pounds, 4 ounces at birth -- the size of a 6-month-old.

Stephanie Munton of Pontefract said her three previous children each weighed more than 10 pounds at birth -- small compared to Charlie, who was so big his mother's stomach measured 60 inches across just days before he was born, the Daily Mail reported Monday.

"The doctors couldn't wait to get him on the scales, and when they told me how much he weighed I just couldn't believe it," Munton said, noting Charlie is now seven months old and weighs 32 pounds, making him much bigger than other babies his age.

"I certainly won't be having any more. With my track record, I dread to think what could happen next time."
