GAINESVILLE, FL (WFLA) - The third baby may very well be the last for a north Florida couple.

Son Isaiah Lawrence Johnson was born Friday at Gainesville's UF Shands Hospital, weighing in at a whopping 14 pounds 7.6 ounces. He was 22 ½ inches long.

Mother Nicia McNelley told the Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/1c0VDdE ) it seemed like it "took forever to get him out."

The baby was born by cesarean section, seven days before his due date. The mother and baby are expected to leave the hospital Monday, just in time for Christmas.

McNelley and Quinta Johnson have two other children, but Isiah was their largest baby - by far.

They live in nearby Keystone Heights.
