Keara Joy Campbell, the first baby born in a Lexington hospital in 2010, was a surprise for her parents. Her mom's original due date was Jan. 19.
Keara weighed 8 pounds, 13 ounces, and was 19 inches long.
Parents Malinda and Arnold Campbell of Oneida in Clay County welcomed their daughter at the University of Kentucky Hospital 2:02 a.m. Friday.
"When I arrived at UK on Wednesday, Dec. 30, I had no idea that I would have the New Year's baby," Malinda said.
Never miss a local story.
It was not only the first baby of the year, but the first of a new decade. The hospital presented the parents with a gift basket.
