PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) -- New year, new beginnings, and a new baby.
Willow May-Grace Pigman is the first baby born in Bay County in 2019. Baby Willow was born at 3:12 Tuesday afternoon at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center.
She weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces and is the first grandchild in the Pigman family. Mother Kassie Pigman said this is the best new year's gift she's ever received.
"I feel tired but I feel great, It's good to be a new mom it's a feeling you think you never feel before," said Pigman.
The family said Willow was named in memory of all the trees damaged by Hurricane Michael.
