A mum has given birth to a massive baby boy, who weighs nearly double the average weight of a newborn
The newborn, who has been named Finnley, was born weighing in at a whopping 14lbs and 1oz – while the average baby weighs only 7lbs and 4oz, according to BabyCenter.
However, in the US, where the family live, anywhere between 5lbs 4oz and 10 lbs is considered normal.
Mum Cary and dad Tim Patonai revealed he is wearing baby grows meant for age six to nine months.
According to LadBible, the new parents were expecting a big baby after doctors warned he could weigh around 13lbs and 8oz but Finnley smashed all of their estimates.
Cary told Fox 10: "As soon as they pulled him out, they're like, 'oh my gosh, that's huge!'
"Everybody was freaking out like I've never seen a baby that big I can't believe it. So perfect and round in every way.
"He's definitely my squishy little honey bear."
Finnley was born by c-section at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, Arizona.
The doctor said he was the biggest baby he had delivered and seen in almost 30 years of working as a medic.

Speaking to Fox News, Cary continued: "He was so big plus I had almost double the amniotic fluid, so to say I had a big baby belly and that I was absolutely completely uncomfortable isn't enough.
"However, I would do it all over again if I had to, to get this blessing."
The hospital had to order in bigger nappies as the ones they had in stock weren't big enough for the youngster.
The Patonai family also had to rush out to get some bigger baby clothes for the new arrival as the ones they had bought were 'entirely too small'.
Cary added: "I wanted him to fit in the clothes we had saved from his other two brothers, but everything we had was entirely too small."
As well as being heavy, Finnley was 'quite tall', measuring 23.75 inches in length.
The proud new mum said Finnley's size made him 'a little celebrity' at the hospital with doctors and nurses talking about him 'non-stop'.
Finnley spent eight days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after his birth, but has since been sent home to settle in with his family.
Cary said: "There was one point in the NICU that he was with one of four babies, and his weight was their three total altogether, so we were laughing at that."
