A woman was shocked when she gave birth to a baby who weighed almost 14 pounds – double the amount she had expected.

Alisha Hernandez gave birth to Mia Yasmin by cesarean section on Monday in Alamosa, Colarado.

She weighed a colossal 13 pounds, 13 ounces (6.3 kg).

The giant baby was flown to a hospital outside Denver because she had low glucose levels and trouble breathing, but her father Francisco Garcia, said she was doing well and the family hoped to take her home soon.

He added the newborn’s size shocked everyone, including hospital staff.

‘They were like, “Whoa!”,’ he said. ‘They opened their eyes like they’ve never seen a baby like that.’

Unsurprisingly mother Alisha wasn’t too keen to on having another child and declared ‘I’m done’.

But luckily for Mia, she already has four older sisters.
