NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nancy Feliciano says knew her son was on the way Monday, but never thought he'd come so quickly.

The 21-year-old says before she knew it she was in Labor and Delivery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

"My water broke so they had to induce me and then he just kind of popped-out," Feliciano said. "Funny story was I was trying to get my epidural and it didn't work."

She thought it wouldn't happen until well into New Year's Day, but just before midnight she knew her baby boy wasn't going to wait any longer.

"I was in so much pain and I was like I can't hold it any more. Then I just kind of felt his head come out around twelve and my mom had to run out and tell them the baby's coming! And he just slipped right out," she said jokingly.

At 12:01 a.m. CST, Feliciano and her boyfriend, Yasmany Rodriguez, welcomed a healthy Yasmany Feliciano Rodriguez, Jr. at 7lb. 8oz.

He was very quiet Tuesday afternoon, but was enough to make his eleven-month-old sister, Yalia, curious.

These young parents say it still hasn't sunk in that they had Middle Tennessee's first baby of the New Year.

"I couldn't believe it. I was in shock. I was thinking to myself, like, how did it happen? Is he meant to be somebody or something?" Rodriguez said.

Little Yasmany is special in another way. His birthday is also the couple's 2nd anniversary.

That means this growing family now has many things to look forward to in the 2013.

"I fell in love. I was nervous and excited and I couldn't believe that God gave me another beautiful baby," Feliciano said.
