How tall was Andre the Giant at birth? 2 feet? And how did he live in his mother like that?

Healthy babies are usually between 18 and 20 inches long. I had a very large baby who was, IIRC, 22 inches and over ten pounds.
Andre became a giant because of the disease acromegaly, in which the endocrine system goes nuts and secretes way too much growth hormone, so there's no reason to presume he was a great big baby.
Women who have twins are often carrying 11-14 pounds of baby near the end of the pregnancy, so even if Andre was a really huge baby, women manage. They're just really uncomfortable and tired.

No one knows. There is no record until he turned 12.
