Jennifer Medlock broke a Texas hospital record, birthing a baby boy with a weght of 14 pounds and 13 ounces … Yes, you read that correctly.
Accordant to a Texas Health Service spokesperson, Medlock’s latest child is presently believed to be the largest ever born at the location.
The baby’s parents have named him Ali. And of course, a C-section was necessitated. He had to spend a little time in the neonatal intensive care unit (for his greater size left him without the required amount of blood sugar platelets), however he had a rapid recovery.
No one in their sound minds would have anticipated fourteen pounds, though. Jenn’s husband explains that they have a family ‘full of giants’ and maybe that is to blame for their elephantine infants (their now 2-year-old daughter Annabelle weighed roughly ten pounds at birth). Jennifer herself is a mere 5’3″!
We are delighted to see that Ali is home resting snugly with his mum and dad. There were no birth difficulties but, we are positive that his mother is never going to let him hear the end of it at family functions.
Every child potentially has heard some variance of the performative woe about how problematic the labor process was. Mums LOVE to pour that guilt juice on us, typically meant as a form of frolicsome razzing, though what we can say . . . we love momma.
