Alberta Health Services has announced this year’s New Year’s baby for Red Deer.  

Shortly after 3AM at Red Deer Regional Hospital, Victoria Dorie and Scott Beardy welcomed their daughter, Bailee weighing 7lbs and 9oz.  

“We weren’t sure if she would be a new years baby or not when I went into labour,” says mom Victoria. “There were others in labour around the same time so it was a bit of a surprise to be told we had the first one of the new year here.” 

 Bailee is the fifth child for Victoria and Scott, who has been welcomed by her older siblings, who look forward to teaching their little sister as she grows.
