Piedmont Hospital celebrated the birth of Walker Hugh Price as the first baby of 2017 in Newton County on New Year’s Day.
Born to Timothy and Tiffany Price, Walker was born at 4:10 p.m. and weighed 7 pounds 2 ounces and was 20 inches long. The middle name, Hugh, was chosen after his great-grandfather.
“He came as an early surprise because we were scheduled for a C-section on the 3rd at 7:30 a.m., but he had different plans,” Timothy said.
Walker has three sisters, Hayvin, Avalea and Willow and one brother Waylon.
“He is beautiful and healthy and we are very excited to have him be a part of our family,” Timothy said.
