The baby, whose name is yet to be released, weighed in at 7 pounds and was very long – 27 1/2 21 1/2 inches, the AP corrects. He joins big siblings Atherton Grace, 6, and Jasper Breckinridge, 3, as well as Don’s older children from previous relationships – Dakota, 16, and Jesse, 23.

Wow! 27 1/2 inches?!?!? That’s a TALL baby…and at a weight of 7 pounds, the boy has got to be skinny too! Congrats to the family!

Ok, 27 1/2 inches HAS to be a typo. That is insanely long! I think if a baby that weighed only 7 lbs was that long it would look emaciated.

Yeah, 27.5 inches is definitely a typo. My son was that long at 6 months, lol.

Well, it’s not a typo on my end at least, that’s what the press release I got says too. We’ll have to see if they send out a correction by the end of the day – I bet they do!

Would Bet Thats 21 1/2 inches- He’s not super tall

Courtney on

27 1/2 inches is just about as tall as the average 2 year old….gotta be a typo…

gargoylegurl on

I had to read that a couple times to make sure it really said 27 1/2! Must be incorrect or that is one crazy looking newborn! lol

Courtney on

The Gainsville.com site says he IS 21 1/2 inches long……

Taryn on

Is this the new blog design??

Courtney on

i was wondering the same thing…….whats going on with the layout?

Sarah CBB Editor on

There was a correction released – 21 1/2 inches, not 27 1/2!

No idea what went on with the layout, Danielle may have been messing with it.

Courtney, a 27.5 inch tall 2-yr-old would be considered extremely short, lol. That’s about the height for an average 7-month-old.

Did anyone noticed that Don’s second child, Jasper, has a Fourth Birthday today?
