HUNTINGTON, West Virginia -

 

Huntington's first baby of 2013 is a healthy seven-pound, ten ounce boy.

Eric Gillenwater was born at 10:46 this morning at the Cabell-Huntington Hospital, much to his parents' surprise.

Eric wasn't due until next week but his mother Ginger went into labor at around nine Tuesday morning.

"We're very surprised about it. We didn't think he could possibly be a new year's baby, but he is. He decided to come," said the new mother Ginger Gillenwater.

Mom and baby are both healthy.
