Detroiter’s look forward to starting the New Year and celebrating one of the area’s most celebrated traditions, “ The first New Year baby.”
Detroiter’s counted down to the beginning of the New Year and woke to see who made history for being the first baby born into the New Year. This years honor goes to the West Family.
Little Shawn Anthony West Jr. was born at 1:47 am New Year’s Day at Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital. The weight and length of the baby is uncertain at this time, but his mother say she's proud to be a mother.
