On Friday morning, Cindy Richmond gave birth to Colin, a 14 pound, 4 ounces newborn boy, at Lexington Medical Center in Lexington.
His weight was a complete surprise to both his mother and doctor.
Colin has set the record for the biggest baby born in the medical center’s history.
According to the Guinness World Records, the largest baby on record was born in 1879 weighing in at 22 pounds.
The baby is healthy, but his mother, Cindy Richmond, says they had to send her mother home for some bigger clothes because Colin couldn’t fit into any of his newborn outfits.
“I went down to the gift shop because I wanted to find him something that he’d be able to fit into,” Arthur Keisler, Colin’s father said. “They’re like ‘Hey how can I help you today?’ I was like: ‘Well I’m here to find something my son can fit into’… and they said ‘Oh! Is he a preemie?’ I was like: ‘No, he’s kind of the biggest baby ever born here.’”
