There's only one word that can really adequately sum up this story: Wow!
Yep, it's enough to make your eyes water when you read about mum Sara Brandon's new arrival to her family – a 14lb baby boy who's already wearing the same sized nappies as his two-year-old twin sisters.
Joel Brandon Jr, nicknamed JJ, was born by Caesarean section - thankfully!
JJ, who was born on May 9 at Timpanogos Regional Hospital in Orem, Utah, was 22 inches long and is believed to be the heaviest baby born in the US this year.
Only Addyson Gale Cessna of Pennsylvania, who weighed 13lb 12oz, comes close.
