Corbitt told Action News Jax that she heard laughter as the doctor was delivering the babyin Orange Park, adding that it “looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly.”

Husband Larry Corbitt says the diapers they had on hand don’t fit baby Carleigh. He says she’s already in size 3 diapers. He says the baby’s due date wasn’t until May 20 or 21, so she would have been even bigger had she not arrived early. The parents say their baby girl is “gorgeous.”

“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.

She’s clearly happy and healthy, but struggled with gestational diabetes early on,” the news report read. Sharing her feelings after she and her baby are doing well, Corbitt said with a smile, “I’m done. I’m done. No more babies for me.”
