Mom Sets Record Giving Birth to This Baby

Although it is not a record, a mom in Missouri gave birth to a really big baby this week. Moreover, it seems the father already has plans for his newborn son to play football in the NFL.

Kasen Michael Box was born on Monday evening in Bolivar, Missouri, coming out at a very solid 12 pounds, 8 ounces and measuring almost exactly two feet in length.

Kasen’s dad, Greg Box, remarked: “Look for him in the NFL,” and his grandpa cracked a joke about calling the baby “Sir”.

Experts in pediatric medicine point out that the majority of newborn infants fall between about six and eight pounds. This means the mighty Kasen is weighing in at almost twice the weight of two smallish newborns.

His size also makes him 66% larger than the average American baby, which weighs in at 7 pounds 7.5 ounces these days.

Not surprisingly, his mom Ashley ended up having to undergo cesarean section when she simply did not have the muscle power to move her massive son out of the birth canal.

Dr. Barbara Wotherspoon notes that babies of Kasen's size are quite rare.

In fact, it seems that just one baby of the over 3,000 that were delivered in 2015 at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, weighed more than 12 pounds.

Dad Greg commented that it was nerve-wracking and not easy to sit in the waiting room while his son was being born by C-section, although he is actually a two-time dad now.

Apparently, fast growth runs in the Box family. Related to this, Greg pointed out that it’s likely Kasen will be outgrowing his baby clothes in record time. His older brother Blake just turned two, but he is wearing clothes made for four-year-olds already!

Ashley commented in an interview with a local media outlet: “To me, he feels small, but he is still huge.”
