Jennifer Medlock, who suffers from a polycystic ovarian syndrome, had previously learned from doctors that it would be extremely difficult for her to have a family. "It does not matter how tall he is," Ali's mother told the local news company KTVT. "I'm so blessed to have him."
Ali spent a week in the neonatal intensive care unit because he had low blood sugar and platelets, but he could go home before Christmas. Jennifer, who was sent home the same day as Ali, was hospitalized for Caesarean section due to an infection in her section. The family has set up a GoFundMe to help with medical costs.
"He sleeps and eats and he's just a healthy kid," Eric Medlock told KTVT. "Just a little bigger than you'd expect." He also mentioned that Ali is already wearing clothes for children aged 3 to 6 months at the age of less than one month.
According to the University of Rochester Medical Center The average weight of a full-time baby is about seven pounds, which means that Ali was more than twice the size of the average.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the heaviest healthy baby ever born was born in September 1955 when Sig. Carmelina Fedele (from Italy) gave birth to a 22-pound, 8-ounce baby. While Ali is far below record weight, he still broke records for Arlington Medical Hospital.
