Amarillo's First New Year's Baby

After watching the ball drop, one Amarillo family spends their new year in the hospital celebrating the birth of their new baby boy.

Samuel and Jaime Bell left their new year's party about one this morning to get to the hospital, and have their fourth child Anthony.

Anthony was the first child of the year in Amarillo, and was delivered at Northwest Texas Hospital.

Jaime says the contractions happened all day Monday, but she says she was not trying to hold out for the new year.

"Not especially. My sister was calling saying free diapers for life if you have the first baby. I didn't really care if it was on the first or not," said Jaime.

"Around the 11th was our original due date. And when they changed it, I thought we could have a New Year's baby."

Baby Anthony may not get free diapers for life, but he'll share a birthday with his dad. Samuel was also a New Year's Baby.
