Giant Baby Tips Scales at 14 1/2 Pounds

Friday, 25 Apr 2014 04:33 PM

A Boston-area woman has delivered what ranks as the biggest babies ever delivered – weighing in at a whopping 14 ½ pounds, Boston TV station WCVB reports.
Carisa Ruscak is the largest infant delivered at Massachusetts General Hospital in more than a decade. Her mother, Caroline Ruscak, expected a large baby, but even she was surprised.
"I heard the weight and I was like, 'Oh my God.' It validated me because I was in a lot of pain when I was pregnant, so to hear the size, it made sense," she told the TV station.
Father Bryan Ruscak was in the delivery room for the Caesarean section.
"When she came out at 14 and a half pounds, I couldn't believe it. I took a picture of the scale just to document it because I couldn't believe how big she was. And long too – 22 inches is long. That's what we like long and big. That's what I am," he said.
