“She knew she gained a lot of weight and thought she might be having twins because she was a twin,” Gay said.

Ford’s doctors estimated based on ultrasounds that her son would weigh a hefty 10 pounds, so everyone was surprised when she gave birth to a 14.1-pound baby.

“When I felt his head come out, I knew he was bigger than 10 pounds,” Ford told WFTS-TV.

Avery was born on Jan. 29 and is expected to get out of the hospital in the next few days. Both mother and son are healthy and doing well, Gay said.

Maxxzandra is the real MVP.

Congrats to the happy family.
