(ABC 6 News) – Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin welcomed their first New Year’s baby early Wednesday morning.

Staff at MCHS said baby Nicole was born at 6 a.m. weighing 9 lbs. and 19.5 inches long.


Nadine Estupiñan said Nicole was born just 40 minutes after she arrived at the hospital.  And, while she was surprised to hear she had delivered the first baby it’s not the first New Year’s baby in her family.

“For some reason when I was growing up I thought it’d be nice to have a New Year’s baby, but then my sister had her son on New Year’s two years ago,” said Nadine.

She has two other kids at home ages two and three.

Congratulations to the Estupiñan family!
