It’s a girl!
Brittany Yoeliz Chavéz Gonzalez was the first baby born in Louisville on Jan. 1 and was delivered at the UofL Center for Women & Infants at University of Louisville Hospital.
The baby was born at 12:03 a.m., weighing 6 pounds and 8 ounces and measuring 19 inches in length.
She is the first child for Irma Gonzalez Garcia and her husband Joel Chavéz, who were overcome with happiness as they cradled their baby.
“I’ve been so happy just hugging my daughter,” Gonzalez Garcia said. “We weren’t thinking about her being the first to be born on New Year’s, we were just so excited to see her.”
