SOUTH BEND, Ind. Two Elkhart residents are the proud parents of one of 2014's first babies of the New Year.

Sarah and Sean McPeak welcomed Benjamin Roy into the world shortly after midnight.

Benjamin weighs six pounds, fourteen ounces and is 20 inches long.

He was delivered by Dr. Edward Durbin, with the help of nurses Morgan and Amy.

The couple, who met in the military, wasn't sure he was going to wait until midnight.

“There was one point, I think it was 11:57, the doctor was like you can push or you can not push so we waited and we pushed at 11:59,” said Sarah. “It was hard and Sean—four minutes later, he was here!”

Benjamin joins an 18-month-old sister, Dannie.
