A baby girl weighing 14 pounds, 3 ounces was born at McAlester Regional Health Center, the largest baby ever born there, a hospital official said.

Lillian Elizabeth Ross was born Friday by Caesarean section to Adrienne and Anthony Ross of Pocola.

The baby already wears clothes made for children 6 to 9 months old.

“The nursery had to go to pediatrics to get diapers for her because they didn’t have any that would fit,” Adrienne Ross said. “We’ve already had to start buying her new clothes. None of the stuff we bought will fit either.”

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, less than 1 percent of babies weigh more than 11 pounds at birth.
