Florida Woman Gives Birth to a 14-Pound Baby -- And She Didn't Even Know She Was Pregnant!

14-pound baby born

Little Avery Ford made his arrival into the world on January 29, 2015, at St. Joseph's Women's Hospital in Tampa, Florida. But his arrival was anything but ordinary. You see, little Avery is not so little -- he was born weighing a whopping 14 pounds 1 ounce!

Didn't know she was pregnant

What is really amazing is that Avery's mother, Maxxzandra Ford, didn't know she was pregnant until she was 35 weeks along (full gestation is usually 40 weeks). She gained so much weight that she thought she might be carrying twins. Avery's birth set a record as being one of the largest babies born in the state of Florida, and the largest baby born at St. Joesph's Women's Hospital.

Adorably huge

Avery was born naturally, and both Avery and his mother are doing just fine. Avery is the fourth child in the family and looks to be more like a 3-month-old, rather than a newborn. Hospital staff referred to Avery as being "adorably huge."
