    The baby, who joins his three older brothers, Chance Jr., 6, Everett, 5, Lucky, 3, and older sister, Marigold, 1 — was not an anomaly for the Ayres family.

    The family’s doctor, Dr. Asa Ahimbisibwe, an obstetrician and gynecologist at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, told GMA, that Sonny was the biggest baby born at the hospital since 2010.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average size of a baby boy at birth is between 7 pounds, 2 ounces to 7 pounds, 6 ounces — and babies that are born “larger” typically weigh around 9 pounds.

    The Guinness Book of World Records lists the heaviest newborn birth on record at 22 pounds in 1879, who died 11 hours after their birth.
