The odds of having one New Year’s baby is slim but two is rare. However, that is exactly what happened to Crystal Hayes.

Crystal’s daughter, Starla Watts, was Angel Medical Center’s New Year’s baby in 2007. Then, brother Leo Q. Hayes Jr. decided he wanted to be Angel’s New Year’s baby and he was born to Crystal and Leo Hayes on Jan. 1, 2015.

To add more coincidence, both infants were born at 35 weeks, 2 days, and Kecia Hursey, RN was present at both deliveries at Angel.

After a brief stay at Mission Hospital, Leo is now home with his family, including another big sister, Aliyiah.

Shown are Starla and her new brother, along with Angel Medical Center nurses, Robin Villiard and Hursey.
