DALLAS, Tex. (KSNT) – A newborn baby is breaking records at a Dallas-area hospital. Ali James Medlock was born on December 12th at Arlington Memorial Hospital.

Ali was no ordinary baby, he weighed in at 14 pounds and 13 ounces!

Because of his size, baby Ali had to stay in the NICU for a week, after experiencing rapid breathing and low blood sugar and platelets. His health has improved since his stay in the hospital. The doctor told his parents that it was the biggest baby he’s delivered in his 30-plus years on the job.
