    Doctors and nurses were shocked after a Taunton, Massachusetts, woman gave birth to a nearly 13-pound baby on Tuesday morning.

    According to the Taunton Gazette, Jennifer Newhook’s second son, Ryker Dean, weighed in at 12 pounds and 14.9 ounces.

    Newhook also gave birth to her son naturally, the biggest natural delivery the nurses at Morton Hospital say they’ve seen.

    Just two weeks ago, the ultrasound registered Ryker Dean at 8 pounds and 11 ounces.

    Ryker suffered a fractured collar bone during the birth, but is otherwise healthy.
