She was born tipping the scales, weighing a whopping 6.020 kilograms (13 lbs., 4 oz). Maisie weighs almost twice as much as an average baby. Her father told HuffPost Australia in an interview that he was feeling quite famous when nurses rushed to him to confirm the news.
Maisie’s mother stated that she had experienced some difficulties in the final weeks of her pregnancy. At 37 weeks, she had a scan, which revealed that Maisie weighed 10 pounds. She didn’t expect her baby to weigh 13 pounds. Maisie’s older sister, 17-month-old Aubree Rose, also followed in the footsteps of big babies, weighing 11lbs at birth.
Her proud father, Mason Macdonald, shared the big news on Facebook with a caption that read: “Welcome to the world and the family ya massive newborn.”Maisie’s story has gone viral and left many people in awe of her massive size.
