MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) A mother from Martinsville is breaking hospital records, or should we say her new baby girl is!

Sydney Penn gave birth to Christa Marlynn Penn on May 26th at 9:24 p.m.

Christa was 12 pounds, 15 ounces and 23.5 inches long.

At Women's Hospital in Greensboro, North Carolina, Sydney's doctor told her, Christa was the biggest baby born there and the biggest baby she's ever delivered.

Sydney says she didn't believe the doctor until she saw her new baby girl lying next to the other newborns in the nursery.

Both Sydney and Christa are home and healthy in Martinsville.

Sydney says Christa has been very good and isn't crying too much yet.
