Baby Charlotte Wren Hunt loves the spotlight and she's only hours old.

Rather than waiting for her due date, January 12th, she decided to make a grand entrance.

"She had other plans I guess. She wanted to be the holiday baby," her mom, Nikki Hunt said.

And the "holiday baby" she is. Not only is she the first baby of the New Year in Knox County, Nikki and Hoss Hunt found out they were having their first child on another big holiday.

"We were very surprised to find out on Mother's Day that we were pregnant," she said.

But she didn't come easily. When mom came in for a check up on New Year's Eve, they admitted her into the hospital to deliver.

"We put December 31st on everything. We had all the paper work filled out because they told us we'd have plenty of time. Now we have to scratch that out," said dad, Hoss Hunt.

Twelve hours later she came into the world.

"It's something that we've waited on for so long and she's finally here and we're just so blessed," Nikki said.

After a miscarriage and a more than year of trying, this baby is getting special treatment.

"She's going to be daddy's little girl for sure. She's already being over protected," Hoss said.

Dressed in bows from head to toe and surrounded by her adoring fans, Charlotte is one happy New Year's baby.

"She will have no trouble being spoiled rotten for sure," said Charlotte's aunt, Kelly Jones.

Both mom and baby are doing well at Parkwest Medical Center.

Parkwest had several other babies born on New Year's Day.

UT Medical Center also had a baby born shortly after Baby Charlotte.
