Tatyana Khalina gave birth on September 17 to Nadia, who weighed a whopping 7.75 kg (17.1 lb) at birth beating this baby by an ounce. A month later Nadia was finally able to go home from hospital to the family's three-bedroom apartment in Aleisk, a town in Russia's Far East.
The air was thick with the shouts and laughter of Tatyana's children playing in the apartment -- she now has nine daughters and three sons. The oldest is 12 years old.
Tatiana's husband is Viktor, a driver in the Russian army.
"For the kids I receive 3,500 rubles ($141.3) a month and Viktor's salary is 10,000 rubles," she said, scratching her arm. "That's only enough for food."
