Kade was the first baby born in the Fresno metro area in 2012. He arrived at Clovis Community Medical Center at 12:54 Sunday morning.
He's the first child for Jessica Deniz and her husband Kevin.
The couple says he wasn't due until January 14th, so his early arrival came as a surprise.
The proud parents say they're thrilled Kade was born on New Year's Day because he'll have a great party every year for his birthday.
