Southern Maryland Hospital Welcomes First Baby of 2013

Riley Maykayla was born at 7:19 a.m. on New Year's Day.

Southern Maryland Hospital saw its first baby of the year just seven hours into 2013.

The hospital greeted Riley Maykayla at 7:19 a.m. while her mother, Kimberly Moten donned a glittery crown.

“I kept saying I wanted to have her on New Year’s Day,” Moten said.  “And I got my wish.”

Sharmaine Spain, the baby's aunt, said Riley has her mom’s lips and her father’s nose.

“I’m glad it’s over,” Moten, who works at Joint Base Andrews as a medical clerk, said. “It was fun being pregnant during the holidays. For a while I thought she might be born on Christmas. And I got to eat a lot of food, especially on Thanksgiving—because I used the excuse that I was pregnant."
