A mother in Indiana, US, has given birth to one of the biggest babies ever born in the state.
Waylon Cole Hallett weighed a massive 7.2kg and measured 62.2cm (24.5in) when he was born via c-section on May 1 at the Schneck Medical Center in Seymour.
He is now home and doing well after spending seven weeks in hospital for breathing and feeding problems.
At seven weeks, Waylon now weighs 7.7kg, the same as an average six-month-old toddler.
His proud dad, Edmond Hallett, said in an interview: "The doctors and nurses were like, 'Oh my God!' We ended up weighing him three times because no one could believe he actually weighed [7.2kg]. At first I thought maybe the scale was broken."
