    Jayden arrived at 10:44 a.m. on Thursday, March 8, 2012.

    A Vista woman delivered a 13-pound, 4-ounce baby last week at Tri-City Medical Center and that news has spread around the world.

    Cynthia Sigler was expecting a 9 to 11-pound baby when she went in for a Cesarean section Thursday.

    After not-so-little Jayden arrived, Sigler asked doctors “How’d he fit?”

    Since the birth, Sigler and her son have been the subject of a number of headlines in newspapers around the world.

    "Whoa, baby! Mom gives birth to 14 pounder" according to the New York Daily News. Other articles appeared in London and even Pakistan.

    Dr. Jerald White, Tri-City's longest-serving doctor, told the North County Times that Jayden is the largest baby he’s ever delivered. The next largest was a 12-pound, 7-ounce baby.

    The largest surviving birth, according to The Guinness Book of Records, was a boy born in 1955 who weighed 22 pounds, 8 ounces.
