Around 1:40 this morning, Bethany and Dan Park welcomed a baby girl at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.

She is the first baby born in Peoria this year.
Clio Eunbe was born 19 inches long, weighing 6lbs 4 ounces.

Bethany is a Peoria Native who came back from South Korea to have Clio.
Bethany Park says Clio was a surprise.

"It was a big surprise, she wasn't due for ten more days, I wasn't expecting it at all, it will be nice to tell her the story when she is older," Park said.

Clio Park was just one of two babies that were delivered between Midnight and eight this morning at OSF St. Francis Medical Center.
