Meet Baby Oakleigh Marie, Lehigh Valley's first 2018 baby

Born at 12:35 a.m. New Year's Day.

FOUNTAIN HILL, Pa. - It’ll be an easy birthday to remember for one Lehigh Valley family.

Dominique Bray and Chad Riddle welcomed daughter Oakleigh Marie at 12:35 a.m. Monday morning.

She came into the world at St. Luke's hospital in Fountain Hill and is believed to be the first baby born in the Lehigh Valley in 2018.

Her parents say they're thrilled, and so is the hospital's staff.

“They were like calling to see if any other babies were born,” said Dominique.

“Everybody was in here. It was like eight doctors at one point, popping their heads in,” added Chad.

Baby Oakleigh was actually somewhat of a long shot for claiming the New Year's baby crown.

Her mom says she wasn't due for another month.
