A couple in Missouri shared some huge news last week. Literally. Jessica Helmers, gave birth to a 13-pound, 8-ounce baby girl named Karsyn on Friday.
"I was tickled," said Jessica. "I still can't believe she weighed over 13 pounds."
Doctors confirmed it as well. Karsyn Raleigh Helmers was born and weighed in at 13 pounds, 8 ounces. She was delivered by c-section right on time.
The new father, Wesley Helmers, said he still can't believe the numbers.
"They called me in there and did all the other measurements," he said.
"They wanted me to see the weight and as soon as it said 13 pounds, 8 ounces I was like, 'Umm, how am I going to explain this one to the bunch.'"
A good question. As for Jessica, she says she's looking forward to arm workouts with Karsyn. That should help shed the baby weight quickly, if it's any consolation ...
