“I think I was in a bit of shock, yeah, because the birth was natural but I only had gas so I was still in a bit of shock from that,” she said.

“It was a bit scary this morning and now everyone is fine. Mum’s fine, the baby’s fine,” added father Brian Liddle.

According to local media, Brian Junior was born at 40 weeks and five days and could be the heaviest baby born in the state of Victoria.
