One family in Huntsville is celebrating the start of the year with a new addition to the family.
Kyrie Staten is the first baby born at Huntsville Hospital in 2019. The baby boy was born at 2:29 AM weighing 7 pounds and 15 ounces. Kyrie has three older siblings.
Huntsville Hospital nurse, Sarah Hill, helped deliver Kyrie early this morning. She says the family had no idea their son would be the first baby born in Huntsville this year.
“They were excited. They were just as excited as I think all of us were. It’s kind of a good way to start their year,” said Hill.
