Battle Creek couple celebrates New Year's Baby at Borgess

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Battle Creek couple is celebrating having the first baby born at Borgess Hospital this new year.

Heather Hoxie and Shon Newton welcomed little Arabella into the world on January 1, at 1:48 a.m.

She's a surprise New Year's baby, considering she was born 10 days late.

Her parents say they will always celebrate her extra special birthday.

"That's so cool," Heather said. "Now there's a party every year for your birthday; you never have to find a party. There's always a party for you."

Arabella is 8 pounds, 12 ounces, 21 and 1/2 inches long, and has a full head of hair.

She and mom are doing great.
