BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The first baby born in Baton Rouge in 2014 entered the world nine minutes after midnight.

Little Victoria is the new daughter of Angel and Moses. Her parents thought she was going to be born in 2013, but several emergency C-sections for other patients pushed her delivery from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

At 12:09 a.m., Victoria became the first baby born in the Capital City.

"It's going to be good every year," Angel said. "We're going to have a big celebration every year for New Year's and the baby's birthday."

Baby Victoria weighed-in at a healthy nine pounds.

The proud parents are from Donaldsonville. This is the couple's second child, as Victoria has a big brother to look after her.
