Red Deer’s New Year’s Baby made an early arrival on Jan. 1st to parents Stacie Bishop and Clinton Sadek.

Aleah Mae Sadek was born at 5:44 a.m. on New Year’s Day at the Red Deer Regional Hospital. The family is from Bluffton. She weighed in at slightly over 5 lb.

Bishop said she was scheduled for a Cesarean section on Jan. 3rd, so the couple were spending a quiet New Year’s Eve at home. “We were at home just taking it easy, and then at about 12:30 p.m. the contractions started,” she said.

“At about 2 a.m. we started the hour-long trip into Red Deer.”

The couple also had her named picked out prior to her birth as well.

Meanwhile, the couple, who left the hospital for home Tuesday morning, were excited and grateful for the new addition to their family.

“She’s definitely a new blessing for a New Year,” said Bishop. “It’s shaping up to be a good year so far.”
