Baby New Year, Costner, came in a quick delivery for the first-time parents.

“I went to the movies and out to eat last night on New Year’s Eve and noticed the pains were getting stronger,” Candace Reid said, “so I came in to the hospital a little after 10 p.m. and then delivered Costner a little before 1 a.m.”

The healthy baby boy weighs in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces and is 18 inches long. Both mother and son are doing well.

Valley View Medical Center presents the family of Baby New Year with a gift basket of infant items and several gift certificates. Registered nurses Michelle Glover and Brittany Houston were on hand to present this year’s gift basket to the new parents.

About 850 babies were born at Valley View Medical Center in 2013, according to the hospital’s announcement released Wednesday.
