WHITTIER,Calif. (KTLA) — A new mother had something extra special to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend.
Yvette Camberos Hernandez of Bell Gardens gave birth to a healthy 13-pound, 10-ounce girl at Whittier Hospital Medical Center.
The newborn, named Kaelyn Hernandez, was delivered Friday via C-section, earning a page in the hospital’s record books.
She was the biggest baby anyone could remember being delivered, the medical center said in a statement.
Wrapped in a yellow blanket, with a big white bow covering her hair, Kaelyn rested comfortably in her mother’s arms as news crews snapped pictures and recorded video of the sleepy infant.
The newborn was nearly twice the size of the average baby, even though she was born a week early.
Yvette was expected to take her daughter home Sunday and introduce the baby to her two older siblings.
