After 19 heart-rending miscarriages, Cary and Tim Patonai welcomed their son Finnley, who weighed in at 14 pounds, 1 ounce – twice the size of an average newborn.

“Finnley was a little celebrity at the hospital. Everyone wanted a selfie with him,” Cary, 36, told TODAY. “The OB-GYN who performed the C-section said that in 27 years he had never seen a newborn that size. There was so much excitement in the delivery."

Had Finnley, who also is tall as a baby at 23.75 inches, arrived two weeks later on his due date, doctors told the Arizona couple, he could have weighed 16½ pounds. The largest newborn in the U.S. was 22 pounds, according to the Guinness World Records. He died 11 hours later.

The Patonais share two other sons Devlen, 10, and Everett, 2, who both were nowhere near the size of Finnley. Devlen was 8 pounds, 2 ounces, and Everett was 11 pounds, 11 ounces – still a large size.
