Florida mum delivers a whopping 13-pound, 5-ounce (6kg) baby girl.

“It looked they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big,” mum, Chrissy Corbitt, told ABC News of her newborn, Carleigh Corbitt.

“When the doctor was pulling her out of me I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room,” Chrissy Corbitt recalled. “They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5lb I couldn’t believe it.”

“It was so funny because she had a C-section so all the blankets were over her so you couldn’t see what was going on,” husband Larry Corbitt explained.

“The doctor said, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s going to be 15-pounds.’ I remember the doctor saying, ‘I don’t think this baby is going to end. Are there two of them?’”

“Her cheeks were so chunky and she was just so fat. She was so gorgeous, of course,” he added.

“She’s like a 6 month old baby,” said Mr Corbitt. “We even contacted Pampers and Huggies to help us out because everything we got to prepare is just out the door. None of it fits. She’s in size 3 diapers. The clothes she had on yesterday was a 9-month outfit. She’s huge.”

Carleigh even arrived a week earlier than her due date.

“Her due date wasn’t until May 20 or 21. She could’ve been a way bigger baby than what she was. It was crazy. Chrissy wasn’t gaining any weight for the past 3 weeks of her pregnancy. It was just Carleigh gaining weight,” Larry Corbitt said.

Nawww she is so adorable! Congratulations mummy.

  • what a healthy baby! hope that they got the supplies that they needed


  • A combination of surprise and shock. The baby appears to be healthy and the parents are happy. Just imagine – some babies are trying to or succeed in sitting up at about that weight.


  • She is gorgeous, but my goodness that would be a shock!


  • My grandmother had 4 kids over 12lb… and she gave birth naturally. She also had one 8 pounder and she said he was the hardest of all to give birth to and that the bigger ones just crawl out on their own.
    My boy was just over 9lb but it was all length. I only pushed for 10 minutes so we all joke that he just stood up in my uterus and fell out.


  • 6 kilo’s? Quite big indeed. But she’s gorgeous. Look at her eyes!! :-)


  • oh my goodness, ouch. Too adorable though, such a cutie


  • what a little (big) stunner! She is just adorable!
