Fla. family welcomes home 14 pound bundle of joy

GAINESVILLE (FOX 13) -

This morning is a very special one for one Florida family. They're welcoming home a very big bundle of joy on Christmas.

Isaiah Johnson was born this week, weighing in at 14 pounds, 7 ounces. He's 22 and a half inches long. Today, he's heading home.

Isaiah was delivered by C-section seven days before his due date. The mom was shocked by his massive size. She joked that as a Christmas gift to herself, she got her tubes tied.

"No, I got my tubes tied, and I'm glad I did because if I were to decide to have more children, after this there's no telling how big they would be after him," Nicia McNelley said.

Isaiah's father said he's proud of his son's size. He said he hopes the boy will one day play for the Florida State Seminoles.
