Not all babies who are born big stay that way; often, their peers catch up with them over time. But Jonah Van Kleef-Bolton, born last week in England, is not likely to be surpassed by many of his future classmates.
Jonah's parents, Keisha and Wilco Van Kleef-Bolton, are the world's tallest married couple; together they are 13 feet, 5 inches tall. Their first child, Lucas, 6, is as tall as an 11-year-old. And "little" brother Jonah is not far behind: born weighing 9.2 pounds and 56 centimeters in height (or 22 inches), he's in the 98th percentile for newborns, which means only 2% of babies are born any taller.
Is your child the size you expected based on his or her birth weight?
