PRINCETON, N.J. (CBS) – A local woman gave birth to a healthy baby girl at 12 a.m. on Sunday, making her Mercer County’s first baby of 2012.

Manisha Mehta and her husband, Yogi Mehta, both of Princeton, were out at dinner on New Year’s Eve when Manisha went into labor a week ahead of her January 7 due date.

The baby girl, who has not yet been named, was delivered at midnight, weighing 6 pounds, 5 ounces. She is the Mehtas’ first child.

To celebrate the New Year’s baby, Community Connection of Princeton HealthCare and the Maternity Department at UMCP presented the family with gifts, including a gift card to Babies R Us; a Lenox vase with a rose for baby; a floral arrangement for mom; the baby’s first outfit and purse.
