Elizabethtown woman gives birth to baby daughter during solar eclipse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Elizabethtown family experienced a life-changing event that actually eclipsed the eclipse.

Jessica Clevenger's daughter was born Monday at Norton Women's and Children's Hospital as the moon passed between the earth and the sun. Clevenger had a pre-scheduled C-section, and the baby was born at 1:33 p.m. while most people's eyes were glued to the skies.

"She still doesn't have a name, but we're trying to come up with a name that kind of fits with the eclipse, so names that might mean moon or sun or light or dark, etc.," Clevenger said.

Clevenger said right after the birth, her husband snuck outside to watch the eclipse. But she'll have to wait to get a peek until 2024 when we experience the next total solar eclipse.
