hilliwack's first baby is Austin Bradley James Fenton-Bitz who checked into the world happy and healthy at 10:33 A.M. January 2 at 6 lbs 13 oz.


In a phone interview Wednesday, new mom Jessica Bitz, told The Voice she was tired but really happy, and that she was home the very next day.


When asked if she thought she was going to have the first baby born in 2013, Bitz said the thought never occurred to her because the baby wasn't due until January 10th.


"I knew he'd be a little bit early, I just didn't think he was going to be the first."

She plans on being a stay-at-home mom and plans on getting married to boyfriend Gilbert Fenton some time down the road.


Both parents chose Baby Austin's multiple names.
