It's always special when a new baby arrives, but arriving at the start of the New Year makes it even more so.

Southern Regional Hospital had the honors of delivering the first baby of the New Year in metro Atlanta. A little boy arrived right at midnight.

It was a bit of a surprise for Marchita Miller as she wasn’t expecting her bundle of joy for a few months. The little boy weighed in at 3 pounds, 5 ounces and is said to be doing well. The family has not picked out a name yet.

Miller beat out two other births. The first was at WellStar Cobb at 12:01 a.m. Nicholas Diaz was born there to Daniel and Diana Diaz. Northside Hospital also welcomed its first New Year's Baby at 12:30 a.m.

Congratulations to all those families and we hope you're getting some much-deserved rest!
