A Massachusetts mother gave birth to a 14 and a half baby girl earlier this week.

“I heard the weight and I was like, ‘Oh, my God.” It validated me because I was in a lot of pain when I was pregnant, so to hear the size, it made sense,” mother Caroline Ruscak told WCVB-TV.

Hospital officials said baby Carisa Ruscak, who was delivered via C-section, is the biggest newborn born at Massachusetts General Hospital in over 10 years.

“When she came out at 14 and a half pounds, I couldn’t believe it. I took a picture of the scale just to document it because I couldn’t believe how big she was. And long too. Twenty two  inches is long,” father Bryan Ruscak said.

 “We expected her to have a big baby. Her first baby was 10 and a half pounds, so we weren’t surprised. We were expecting a big baby, but we weren’t expecting one quite that big,” Dr. Jennifer Kickham said.

Earlier this month, a Pennsylvania gave birth to a more than 13 pound little boy.
