Huge Baby Born in Massachusetts: 14.5 Pounds!!!

For the record, it's cruel to refer to Chrissy Teigen as overweight.

But the same doesn't exactly hold true for Carisa Ruscak, a baby born on Tuesday at Massachusetts General Hospital... who weighed in at 14.5 pounds!!!

She's the second heaviest child to ever come into the world inside that building.

"Everyone in the operating room was like, ‘Oh my God, look at the size of this baby! Let’s get her on the scale, what does she weigh?’” mother Caroline told WHDH, adding:

"It validated me because I was in a lot of pain when I was pregnant, so to hear the size, it made sense."

Carisa was born via Caesarean section and weighs the same as an average six-month old; overall, about 1 in 100,000 newborns are over 14 pounds.

In January of this year, the biggest baby in California history was born at 15 pounds, 2 ounces. OUCH!

"That's what we like, long and big. That's what I am," Carisa's dad Bryan told the WCVB.

"I've been teased a lot so I'm a good sport, no problem with me long as they don't say anything bad about my little girl."
