First time parents give birth to their leap year son

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA- On Leap Day, Kadlec Regional Medical Center expected to welcome close to twelve Leap Day babies. We got to meet one of those lucky families. 

Chelsea Gipson welcomed her seven pound seven ounce baby boy into the world at 12:48 in the morning. She was smiling ear to ear and overjoyed to have her son in her arms. We asked her how she feels giving birth on Leap Day and she told us, "it's crazy, I don't know how I'm going to explain to him his birthday, we'll figure that out I guess". 

Kadlec said in 2012, on the last Leap Day, they delivered eight babies and by noontime they had already reached that number and were still expecting more.
