January 1, 2014 -

Traverse City's newest celebrity is baby boy Beau Robert Fasel, born to parents Bryan Fasel and Kristina VanVleet.

The 2014 New Year's baby was born at Munson Medical Center at 4:12 am weighing 8 pounds, 3 ounces and measuring 21.5 inches long.

And thanks to his status as the first baby born at the hospital in the new year, Beau is wearing a blue knitted hat, made especially for him by a hospital volunteer.

Beau was supposed to be due last week on Christmas.

But before his mom could be induced, he decided to make his appearance.

9 and 10's Marisa McKay and Jeremy Erickson met Beau and spoke to his proud parents who tell us a unique family situation meant Beau's waiting, was actually good timing.
