New Year's Day baby shares father's birthday

SAGINAW, Mich. - A baby born on New Year's Day in Saginaw, Michigan, shares a little something extra with his father -- the same birthday.

The Saginaw News reports 19-year-old Isona M.C.R. McFee gave birth to Joseph A.M.

Jones-McFee early Sunday at Saginaw Covenant HealthCare Harrison. His father, Joseph E.J. Jones, marked his 20th birthday on the day of his son's birth.

Jones says he had a gut feeling his son might end up sharing his birthday.

McFee went to the hospital on New Year's Eve for the third time since Christmas, the baby's due date, and delivered the child after about 14 hours.

The baby weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measured 19 1/2 inches long. McFee says he's been a pleasant newborn: quiet, full of smiles and playful.
