The Jones family welcomes the newest member of their family.

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - In Tyler, the first baby of the new year arrived just before 1:00 a.m. this morning at UT Health Tyler.

Andromelia Jones got exactly what she wanted for the new year- Her baby girl Alanna Gracelyn Jones.

“It feels good y’all, blessed I can’t complain it’s all in Gods timing everything is good," she said.

Making this holiday that much more special.

“So, it’s awesome that I have a holiday baby, two of them actually," she said.

That’s right, Alanna’s big sister, 18-month-old Amelia Paris Jones also celebrates her birthday on a holiday- The Fourth of July.

Dad Joshua Jones said his children are a blessing. But he’s interested to see how it will be to have two daughters now.

“Oh, they’re going to hurt my pockets in the long run," he said with a smile.

All jokes aside the parents said they are happy to start the new year off with their children and want the best for them.

Congratulations to all East Texas families who welcomed a new family member this New Year’s Day.
