Oh, Baby! This Mom Just Broke A Record And Delivered A 14 Pound Baby

A little baby boy from South Carolina was just born and he weighs 14 pounds! That's DOUBLE the size of a typical newborn.

Being 14.4 pounds, puts him in the weight range for an average 4 to 5 month old baby. 

More excitement came when the hospital (The Lexington Medical Center) learned that this was a new record for them

"The O.R. kind ah -as soon as he came out, they said 'we have to weigh him right now'. Instead of waiting. So they pulled a scale out and they put him on there, and as soon as they saw 14 pounds it was like this amazing reaction," said father Arthur Keisler.

"My vote was 12 pounds, I wasn't thinking 14,” mother Cindy Richmond said.

Mom and baby Colin are both doing well and went home today.
