At 14 pounds and 13 ounces, Ali Medlock weighs twice as much as an average baby. He is the biggest baby ever born at Arlington Memorial Hospital, his parents told CBS Dallas / Fort Worth.
"I was like & # 39; Omg really – I do not think it's ever registered," said mom Jennifer Medlock.
Ali's size is for parents Jennifer and Eric Medlock – their older daughter – no shock Annabelle weighed nine pounds, 10 ounces at birth.
"It does not matter how tall he is, I'm so blessed," said Jennifer.
Ali spent his first week in the neonatal intensive care unit due to low blood sugar and low platelet counts, but is feeling much better now.
Jennifer was not sure if she could ever have a child, let alone two. She has polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormonal disorder that can make children difficult.
Annabelle was born with the help of fertility treatments, and Jennifer had planned to start this process again when they learned that they were pregnant with Ali.
"I love to prove to people that they are wrong," says Jennifer.
People are already speculating about Ali's future due to his size.
"He's meant for something big," she said. "Maybe not football, everyone always says that."
