Airman's family welcomes first baby born in Onslow County in 2018

ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - An airman and his family welcomed the first baby of 2018 in Onslow County.

Preston Young was welcomed into the world at 2:30 a.m. Monday by his proud parents, Captain Patrick Young and his wife, Alexa.

It all went down at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune.

The little guy weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and measured 18.5 inches long.

Preston was expected to arrive in late December but figured 2018 would be a better fit.

Congratulations to them and may they have a happy 2018.
