Woman Gives Birth to Incredibly Heavy Baby

fatbabydef-pxiyri A woman in the San Luis Valley, CO, got quite the natal surprise this week when she gave birth to a baby that came a little bigger (and earlier) than expected. Parents Alisha Hernandez and Francisco Garcia had been signed up for a C-section for Thursday, December 5, and were expecting a 7-pound bundle of joy. Instead, the mother went into labor on Monday, and (via C-section, thankfully) gave birth to a baby that was 22 inches long and a whopping 13 pounds and 13 ounces. The average weight of a newborn is around 7.5 pounds, which makes Mia Yasmin Garcia the heavyweight champion of newborn babies. "She beat the record for the whole valley," the proud father said, "and we're so happy right now." Mia was flown out to Aurora Children's Hospital on Monday because of respiratory issues and low glucose levels, but now both the mom and baby are perfectly healthy. The parents are looking forward to taking Mia home to her four sisters, and the mom says, quite understandably, that this might be it in terms of family planning for now. "She was like, 'Whoa, I'm done. I'm done for the season,'" Francisco laughed, referring to his wife's reaction.
