Austin welcomes first baby of 2013

Posted: Updated:

The New Year is off to a great start for one Austin family, who welcomed the latest addition to their family.

Aubrey Star Rodriguez was the first baby of 2013 born in the Saint David's Hospital system.

She was born at 12:04 this morning at Saint David's South on Ben White. Little Aubrey weighs 7 pounds and 11 ounces and is 20 inches long.

Mom Mary and dad Leo say they weren't expecting Aubrey to be a New Year's baby. They came in to the hospital Sunday night for an induced labor, but when that didn't go according to plan, Mary had to have a C-section last night.

"I was like, what? We won the cookie basket! I thought that was pretty cool. I was like, 'We'll share!'" Mary Rodriguez said.

"This moment is the best present this year, and it's a new life for my family," Leo Rodriguez said.

This isn't the first addition for the Rodriguez family. Aubrey has a 7-year-old older brother.
