WAYNE – Late in the afternoon on the second day of 2018, Providence Medical Center welcomed in their first baby to the New Year.
According to a release from PMC, Reid and Heidi Allen will have another son in their family. Harrison Russ Allen was born on Tuesday, January 2 at 4:36 p.m.
Dr. Melissa Dobbins delivered the baby and he came out at 20 inches long and weighing eight pounds, three ounces. This is the third son for the Allen family, joining brothers Carter (age 4 ½) and Lincoln (age 2 ½).
