Back in 1983, then 24-year-old Patricia Clarke got pregnant with her second child. Having given birth to a large baby before, she didn’t expect her second one to be any less bigger. In fact, having big babies ran in the family, but what no one expected was to baby Kevin Robert Clark to break the record.
When he was welcomed into the world, now 40-year-old Kevin weighted staggering 16 pounds, making him the biggest baby ever born at Community Memorial Hospital and likely at entire New Jersey area.
Baby Kevin wouldn’t fit into standard baby-size clothes nor into a regular baby crib. But what was most important of all was that he was perfectly healthy, and that was all his parents wanted.
His weight was so astounding that he and his family made headlines across the country, and that included a segment on “Saturday Night Live” and a mention on “Good Morning America.”
As expected, Kevin turned into a big teenager. When he reached 12 years of age, his height reached 5 foot 7 as per The New York Post.
By junior high, he stood at 6 foot 5. But he didn’t stop there. On the contrary, he grew even taller in the years to come.
“There isn’t a day that goes by when someone doesn’t ask me how tall I am,” Kevin told the Post.
“I like to joke that I’m 5-foot-21. When people ask if I play basketball, I ask them if they play miniature golf.”
Kevin, who is now 40 years old and is a former military man, is 6 feet 9 inches tall and wears shoes size 17. He’s married and lives with his wife, who’s significantly shorter than him, and their Great Dane.
Being this tall isn’t always easy but it does come with plenty of advantages.
We are certain Kevin is often bothered with questions about his appearance, but we also know that he’s handling that just fine.
