Morgan Miller and Jeremiah Russo welcomed the first baby born in Sarpy County in 2014.
Jeremiah Joe Russo Jr. was born to the couple at the Bellevue Medical Center at 8:08 a.m.
In addition to being the first baby born this year in Sarpy County, 7-pound, 1-ounce Jeremiah is also the first child for Miller and Russo, and is the first grandchild for Miller’s family.
Miller, 18, and Russo, 20, used to be Bellevue residents but recently moved to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Miller said she chose the Bellevue Medical Center because she already had a doctor there and didn’t want to switch.
“It was completely unexpected to have him on New Year’s,” Miller said. “It’s exciting.”
Jeremiah was one of two babies born at the hospital on New Year’s Day.
