Time of New Year's baby's birth matches dad's police badge number

BILLINGS, Mont. -- One baby in Montana not only has a New Year's birth date, but a time of birth matching his dad's police badge.

Billings police officer Jeff Stovall and his wife welcomed their son Jaxsen into the world at 4:32 a.m. Thursday.

His dad says he didn't immediately think about it but his son's timing couldn't have been more perfect.

"I didn't even really realize it at first when the doctor announced what time he was born at and then I said '432.' And it just kind of clicked and then wow, I said that's pretty cool," Stovall said.

Jaxsen is one of five babies born in the same Montana hospital on New Year's Day. But, his timing was considered the most special.
