Is it teething time for your little one?

An expectant mum got a very big surprise this week when she delivered a 13 pound baby.


Alisha Hernandez, from Colorado, had previously been told by doctors that she was due to give birth to a seven pound baby.


She was in for something of a shock however, when doctors at the San Luis Valley delivered her daughter on Monday, with baby Mia Yasmin weighing in at 13 lb 13 oz, measuring 22 inches in length.


Speaking after the birth, Mia’s father Francisco Garcia said that even staff at the hospital were surprised: “They’re all shocked that they’re seeing a baby like that. Even in the San Luis Valley, they were like whoa! They opened their eyes like they’ve never seen a baby like that.”


Mr Garcia said that the couple’s four other children were all born at “normal” weights.



Mia’s birth comes just one year after the birth of baby Joel Brandon, who was dubbed America’s biggest baby of 2013 after weighing in at a whopping 14 pounds.


Congratulations to the family on the birth of their gorgeous bundle of joy!
