New Year’s baby in Whiteville

Whiteville, NC (WWAY)– Imagine giving birth to a baby on Christmas, Easter and New Year’s. One Columbus County mother continued a tradition of having holiday children.

“I thought it was going to be a New Year’s baby. I had a dream about it and it actually came true,” says mother Yvetta Jones.

7 pound 5 ounce Joan Syaira Ismay Herod is the first baby born in Whiteville in 2012. For Jones this is her 5th child, but first little girl.

“I’m about to cry…but ya just having her is wonderful,” Jones said. “I always wanted a girl and I finally got one.”

Jones says she looks forward to doing all sorts of girl stuff with her daughter from dressing her up to even putting her in pageants.

Little Joan was due January 11th, but Jones says she had a feeling her daughter was going to come early.

“I have a Christmas baby and a Easter baby, so its just amazing to have all these holiday babies. I guess I’m blessed or lucky or something,” said Jones.

Jones came to the hospital on December 26th then was sent home only to return New Year’s day. This time she will be leaving the hospital with Columbus County’s first baby of 2012 and also what she says will be her last child.
