TAMPA, Florida -- You've heard the crazy stories about women who have no idea they're pregnant and as hard as it is to believe, it happens more often than you think. Take Maxxzandra Ford, for instance. She's a Tampa, Florida woman who went seven months before realizing she was expecting but brace yourself because that's not even the shocking part of the story.

When she finally did welcome her new son, Avery, into the world, he weighed twice the average size of a newborn! Fourteen pounds and one ounce to be exact and to top it all of, Ford delivered him naturally. Avery's father says he hopes his son will grow up to play football and that sounds like a pretty good game plan.
