A 14-pound baby was born at the UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida on Friday, December 20, 2013. (Watch the 14-pound baby on video.)

The record-setting baby named Isaiah Lawrence Johnson, born via C-section, weighs 14 pounds and 7.6 ounce. He was the second largest baby reportedly delivered in Florida this year.

Nicia McNelley and Quinta Johnson were surprised to have a 14-pound baby that is already the size of a three-month old. Isaiah Lawrence is even heavier than a professional bowling ball and is about the same weight as two gallons of milk.

McNelley explained that “Me and his dad were shocked when he came out and they said 14 pounds, we could not believe it. He’s been our strong boy in holding on and fighting. I really didn’t think he would do this well but he’s proven me wrong, he’s made me a proud momma for sure.”

The 14-pound baby‘s mother also revealed the plan of his father. According to McNelley, Quinta “is a Seminole fan, so he’s wanting him to play football for the Seminoles.”
