Nearly 14-pound baby born at western Pa. hospital

KITTANNING, Pa. (AP) — A woman has given birth to a nearly 14-pound baby at a western Pennsylvania hospital.

Doctors at Armstrong County Memorial Hospital near Kittanning say they don’t keep official records of the largest baby ever birthed at the facility, but say Mark and Michelle Cessna’s daughter born Thursday is the largest they can recall.

“Little” Addyson Gale Cessna is anything but, weighing in at 13 pounds, 12 ounces and measuring 25 inches long.

The couple is from Rural Valley, not far from the hospital which is about 40 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The Cessnas told KDKA-TV (http://cbsloc.al/13RZmZy ) that doctors believed the baby would be above average, but even so, they were told to expect a child about 11 pounds.

Addyson Gale was delivered by C-section and joins two brothers.
