As Christine Corbitt quickly approached her due date, her stomach was undeniable.
“Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. She’s just so huge,'” Corbitt said.

Indeed, Carleigh Brooke Corbitt was huge. At 13 pounds, 5 ounces, she was the largest newborn Dr. Eric Edelenbos has ever delivered.

“When the baby was coming out, I was like, ‘Is this baby ever going to end?’ Everybody in the room kind of just stopped during the delivery and was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh,’” he said.
We were there as mom and baby went for their three-week checkup. Carleigh was decked out in pink and white and didn’t fuss a bit. She’s clearly happy and healthy, but struggled with gestational diabetes early on.
“I’ve had nine- and 10-pound babies and I figured maybe she’d be 10 pounds. I’d have another 10-pound baby, but she was a surprise,” Corbitt said.

Carleigh had to stay in the NICU for a bit while her blood sugar levels were checked and she got the all-clear.
The Corbitts say a number of media outlets have contacted them about Carleigh’s large entry into the world, but Action News Jax officially gave her her TV debut.
As for Christine, she plans on taking some much-needed rest — for good this time.
“I’m done. I’m done. No more babies for me,” she said with a smile.
