"It's really exciting my first little girl," says Brandon Henry of Opelousas. Brandon henry and his wife Jennifer are the proud parents of Brielle Noel Henry.
Brielle was born at Opelousas General Hospital at 12:03am on January 1, 2013. The young couple knew the birth of their first child would be a happy occasion, but never expected their little bundle of joy to already be in the spotlight. "As a mom I just hope for the best for her. that she succeeds and achieves her dreams."
The grandparents of Brielle are just as proud. Debra Lamb of Opelousas is Brielle's grandmother. "My granddaughter is so beautiful. She's an angel. I cried. I'm about to cry again."
Lamb says Brielle is healthy and that's all she wanted. Plus, there is something Lamb is thankful about - the two parents of her new grandchild. "I'm proud not just that she was born on New Year's, but they're such a wonderful young couple and they're going to do an awesome job with their baby."
