Armani Milby, from the US, had to be delivered via an emergency C-section at 33 weeks after she was diagnosed with a severe form of lymphangioma which causes benign growths in the lymph vessels
A mum has nicknamed her newborn daughter ‘baby Hulk’ after the child was born with a rare condition that makes her chest and arms appear to be extremely muscular.
Armani Milby, who is now nine-months-old, was delivered via an emergency C-section at 33 weeks after she was diagnosed with a severe form of lymphangioma, which causes benign growths in the lymph vessels, leading to her mum Chelsey to liken her to Marvel superhero Hulk.
Armani was born weighing 12lbs, three times more than the average-sized baby at that point in gestation due to the extremely rare congenital condition that left people thinking her mum was expecting triplets, as she tipped the scales at over 200lbs when pregnant.
Chelsey, 33, from Kentucky, US, found out that Armani had the condition after an ultrasound at the 17-week mark of the pregnancy and doctors were concerned over suspected fluid around her heart.
