ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) - A hospital in Washington says a woman gave birth this month a baby weighing nearly 15 pounds.

Grays Harbor Community Hospital says the average newborn weighs about 7 ½ pounds at birth. Yessica Ortiz Delgado delivered a boy named Francisco Leon Ortiz who weighed 14 pounds and 11 ounces.

Delgado’s two other children were about 12 pounds each at birth but the mother didn’t expect her newest to be so large.

Both mother and son are doing well.
