Parents create Facebook page for unborn child

WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - About four months into her pregnancy, Ellie decided it was time to announce the big news

Who do you tell first, or how do you tell somebody, and the Matt one morning said, hey lets make her a Facebook page and then everyone will know almost instantly

Unborn Marriah Greene sent out hundred's of Facebook requests says her mother Ellie, "Everybody is on Facebook, all of our friends are on Facebook, things fly through Facebook now."

And it didn't take long for people to accept the news.

"Within a day she had over a 100 friends," says Ellie.

At first, Ellie and Matt just posted updates about Marriah. "We weren't really sure how people would respond to it, but it's been interesting watching people actually directly talking to her," Ellie said.

But now that Marriah speaks in first person on Facebook, people respond instantaneously says Marriah's father, Matt, "People started interacting with what Ellie was typing on there, she would say oh I'm kicking my mom today or I'm doing summersaults, and then it would start oh, do summersaults this way, or do it that way, you should try doing this Mariah, we were like, oh people are interacting with this."

With a creative profile, a heart warming picture, and a catchy university, Marriah already has quite the personality.

We wanted to keep the page going, so she could go back and look at it and look at how many people were interested in what was going on with you before you were even here.

Ellie and Matt plan on continuing Marriah's page, with her birth story in the next few posts.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
