Sure enough, their son was born on January 1 at three minutes past midnight. He is the first baby of the year, born at Selfoss Hospital, Southwest Iceland. The crazy part? New mother, Katrín was also Iceland's New Year baby - born on January 1 at Selfoss Hospital in 1980.

The healthy little boy is the couple's third child and reports say he and mom are doing well!
