Donna Simpson from New Jersey, the United States, is already named in the Guinness Book of Records as the fattest mum, weighing a mega 600lbs (more than 300kg). A group of 30 medics were required to deliver her daughter during a high-risk Caesarean birth.
The mother of two kids, son Devin and daughter Jacqueline, eats over 15,000 calories a day to sustain her weight gain, which weekly costs her £500, or nearly £25,000 per year.
In order to afford for her food bill, she has set up a website for “fat admirers”, who must pay to look at photos of her eating. She now hopes to break the 1,000lbs or half a ton mark.

Simpson got married to her first husband, a chef at a steak restaurant, when she was 19. Her hubby worked night shifts and often came home at 2 or 3am with the leftovers in his hands, so they had stayed up to eat huge piles of steak, mashed potatoes and gravy with butter.
As a result, the woman began getting fat fast but felt happy because her husband praised her that Simpson looked more attractive when she was bigger.
However, the couple got divorce soon after she was pregnant with her eldest son, Devin, and turned to food for comfort.

In contrast to her mother, Jacqueline eats healthily. “She loves salad and plays sports.” Donna said
By the age of 31, she decided to lose weight by planning a gastric band operation. However, her friend died during a similar operation just before she undertook surgery so she thought that “It just wasn't worth it. I like being the way I am.”
When she admitted her real size, Donna was flooded with emails from men
“I love eating and people love watching me eat.” Simpson said
Later, she remarried Philippe Gouamba, whom she met on a dating site for plus-size people, but they were separated after a long time. She now relies on her four-year-old daughter Jacqueline to buy, prepare and bring her food. “She helps me cook and comes shopping. I use a scooter to get around the store and she runs ahead to get my favourite foods.” Simpson said.
