A woman from Florida has given birth to a baby girl weighing 13 pounds and five-ounces – almost twice the weight of the average newborn.

Proud parents Chrissy and Larry Corbitt say they had no idea how large their bundle of joy would be and likened the size of their daughter, Carleigh, to that of a toddler.

"When the doctor was pulling her out of me I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room,” Chrissy told ABC News.

"The doctor said, 'Oh my gosh, she’s going to be 15-pounds. I don’t think this baby is going to end. Are there two of them?" recalled husband Larry.

"Her cheeks were so chunky and she was just so fat. She was so gorgeous, of course."

"They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5, I couldn’t believe it.

"It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big."

Doctors who performed the C-section were just as shocked and even suggested that she might be having twins.
