The path of the solar eclipse August 21. "She'll probably have some pretty special birthdays".
After their new bundle of joy came into the world at 8:04 a.m., a few hours before the historic solar eclipse was visible across the U.S., the couple took it as a sign to name their baby Eclipse in honor of the wonderful phenomenon.
She was due to give birth on September 3 but instead went into labour early and had her baby at Greenville Memorial Hospital.
Eclipse's mother and father, Michael, had originally planned to name their child Violet.
Eclipse Alizabeth Eubanks, as the newborn is now legally known, wasn't the only baby born in the hospital Monday. The new earthling weighed in at 6 pounds, 3 ounces, measured 19 inches long and sported a full head of hair.
Hours later, Eclipse arrived.
A baby born at Greenville Memorial Hospital to parents Freedom and Michael Eubanks was named Eclipse Alizebeth in honor of the special day.
Most of the parents said they were going to save pictures and newspaper clippings of the eclipse for their babies' scrapbooks.
