Jan. 20 marks the day Barack Obama became president and the day Barack Obama was born.

Barack Obama is the name a poor Colombian couple chose for their son, who was born on Inauguration Day.

The mom (Silvia Fajardo) tells Colombian television she hopes her mixed-race son will be as "humble" as the new president and "do something productive in the future."

Little Barack weighs in at just over six pounds and is 18-inches long.

Hospital officials in the city of Cali say the baby will get free diapers, milk and medical care for six months.
