13.5 pound boy born at southeastern Pa. hospital
By Associated Press

A woman has given birth to a more than 13-pound baby at a southeastern Pennsylvania hospital.

Officials at Delaware County Memorial Hospital say Brian and Danielle Dwyer's son born Monday is the largest baby they can recall there.

Waldo James Mysterious Dwyer tipped the scales at 13 pounds, 8.5 ounces.

The couple loved the "Where's Waldo?" books as children, so that's where they got their son's first name.

Brian Dwyer said the middle name Mysterious is because Waldo was born under a lunar eclipse on April 14, 2014 - a date that reads the same forward and backward.

The Dwyers live in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. New dad Bryan is a co-owner of Pizza Brain, a popular pizza shop and pizza museum.
