Shevonne Singleton (pictured with her baby above), gave birth on Thursday and her baby weighed in at a whopping 13 pounds and 22 inches. Little Victor Martinez, Jr. was the biggest baby born at Lenox hospital in 30 years.
Although her baby was born by a Caesarean section, the average weight of a U.S. newborn is 7.5 pounds.
The Harlem stay-at-home mom and her hubby, Victor Martinez Sr., 28, had no clue that their adorable new addition weighed so much while in the womb.
“We weren’t expecting him to be this big,” she said, noting the huggable heavyweight already fits into clothes made for a 6-to 9-month-old.
Victor, nicknamed “Fat Man” by his parents, has been the hit of the maternity ward – and neither his mom nor his doctors can explain why he came out so big.
“I guess I ate well,” Singleton said.
