The heaviest baby to have ever been delivered at Queensland’s Rockhampton Hospital arrived on Monday.
Maisie Lily Macdonald, weighed in at a whopping 6.02kg, surprising parents, Mason Macdonald and Makaela Kirkby, by arriving a week early.
She joins 17-month-old sister, Aubree Rose, who was also a heavy infant, born weighing just over 5kg.

‘I’d like to introduce Maisie Lily Macdonald to everyone, weighing in at 13 pound 4 ounces (6.020 kilograms) claiming the record of biggest baby born at Rockhampton hospital,’ he wrote.
‘Welcome to the world and the family ya massive newborn.’
The words accompanied a photo of Maisie fresh out of the womb, with doctors proudly holding her up above the operating table.
