I gave birth to an 11-pound baby at home with NO pain relief, I’ll never forget my husband’s face when he saw the scale

A MUM who had a home birth has revealed her husband’s hilarious reaction when they discovered how much their baby weighed.

Rachael Vance shared a video of the cute moment her husband found out how heavy their little boy had arrived into the world.

In a post on TikTok, the American woman – who gave birth naturally without any medication – explained how she had been a week overdue and was already fearing that she would be delivering a large baby.

However, the mum wrote: “And he was big…but you didn’t realise how big.”

An image of her with a baby bump, and another picture moments after she gave birth, were followed by a video showing her other half weighing their newborn in a bag with the help of a midwife.

Her husband sheepishly smiled as he was told his son weighed 11lbs, while others in the room audibly gasped.

And he was big…but you didn’t realise how big…
