Chrissy Corbitt, a mother of four, gave birth to her daughter Carleigh, and pictures of the baby quickly took the internet by storm. At the time of her birth, Carleigh weighed a startling 13 pounds and 5 ounces, nearly double the weight of most newborns. Even the doctors were surprised at the size of this bundle of joy.

Speaking with ABC News, Corbitt said, “When the doctor was pulling [Carleigh] out of me, I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room.”

“They were throwing out numbers and, when they show her to me and said 13.5, I couldn’t believe it,” said Corbitt. “It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big.”

Corbitt and her husband, Larry, weren’t prepared for such a large baby and ended up reaching out to a few companies to ask for a hand.

“We even contacted Pampers and Huggies to help us out because everything we go to prepare is just out the door,” said Larry. “None of it fits. She’s in size 3 diapers. The clothes she had on yesterday was a 9-month outfit. She’s huge.”

In celebration of the birth, the Corbitt’s decided to have a photo shoot. The photographer, Debbye Benson of Sweet Smiles Photography Studio, captured the images.
