BOLLINGER COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A Bollinger County couple added to their family in a big way on Friday.

"I was tickled," said Jessica Helmers. "I still can't believe she weighed a little over 13 pounds."

Doctors confirmed that as well. Karsyn Raleigh Helmers was born and weighed in at 13 pounds, 8 ounces. She was delivered by c-section right on time.

Dad said he still can't believe the numbers.

"They called me in there and did all the other measurements," said Wesley Helmers. "They wanted me to see the weight and as soon as it said 13 pounds, 8 ounces I was like, ‘Umm, how am I going to explain this one to the bunch.'"

Doctors say baby Karsyn is health and will be released from the hospital Friday.

Mom said she is looking forward to the future arm workouts.
