Mother Gives Birth to 12-Pound Baby

On Monday, Ashley Box gave birth to her son Kasen Michael Box who weighed an astonishing 12 pounds and 8 ounces. That is 66 percent larger than the average American baby that usually weighs 7 pounds and 7 ounces.

Only one of the 3,000 babies delivered in 2015, at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri weight 12 pounds. After traditional labor methods failed, Ashley had to go under an emergency cesarean section.

Kasen's father, Greg Box, from Bolivar, Missouri, said "Look for him in the NFL." Kasen's grandfather joked about calling the baby "Sir."

Ashley said "To me, he feels small, but he is still huge."

Studies show that only 0.1 percent of babies are born over 12 pounds.
