ORLANDO, Fla. - The first baby of 2014 was born at Florida Hospital on Wednesday morning just after midnight.
Brittani Gorman and her fiance, Michael Woods, welcomed Nickali Lee Woods at 12:10 a.m. Nickali was born 19 and a half inches and 8 pounds, 13 ounces.
Gorman and Woods said the baby was supposed to be born on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but complications resulted in delayed birth. Gorman was in labor starting at 9 a.m. on New Year's Eve.
The couple says 2013 was an especially hard year for them as Woods lost his job at Walmart and they were involved in a car accident. They said they hope baby Nickali brings good luck in 2014.
Also born at 12:10 a.m. was Malaki Pena at Winnie Palmer Hospital.
The first baby of Brevard County was born at Holmes Regional Medical Center at 1:25 a.m. Viera residents Rachel and Damian Starr welcomed Nathan Starr at 10 pounds, 12 ounces and 22 inches long.
