Rex Hospital Beats WakeMed in New Year Baby Race

We wonder if there wasn’t some money put down in Las Vegas on which Raleigh hospital would deliver the first baby of 2014. If there was and you bet on Rex Hospital you are probably yelling “Winning” right about now.

According to the N&O little Ezekiel Russell Brown crossed the finish line 18 minutes ahead of the second place finisher.

Brown worked hard at making it to number one finish by holding out in the womb for an extra four days to time his C-section delivery to just 10 minutes after the new year rolled in.

Rumor is doctors heard Brown shouting “get me out of here and slap my ass” as midnight struck.

WakeMed delivered baby number two.
