MURRAY, Utah — The first baby born at an Intermountain Healthcare facility in 2021 is a 6 pound 11 ounce girl.

Juliana Harden was born at Intermountain Medical Center at 12:09 a.m.

The proud parents of this New Year's Day baby are Teressa McMorris and Joshua Harden of South Jordan.

“I’m very excited. I can’t wait to take her home and introduce her to her two-year-old sister. I’m looking forward to the pandemic getting better in 2021 and things getting back to normal,” McMorris said in an Intermountain Healthcare news release.

Juliana is McMorris' second child.

“Being pregnant during the pandemic was stressful, since pregnant women are more at risk of the COVID-19 virus. There were unexpected stressors. I followed all of the pandemic guidelines to stay healthy and luckily avoided COVID-19. I’m looking forward to getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” McMorris added.
