ECLIPSE 2017: Eclipse day babies born
Monday was Eclipse Day, a rare lifetime event - and some were born just in time to live it.
MU Health reported that as of 3:55 p.m. Monday, four babies were born at the Women's and Children's Hospital, each gifted with an eclipse onesie in celebration of the day's event.
The first 'Eclipse Baby' at MU Health was Corbin Watts.

At Boone Hospital Center three babies were born, and one during the partial eclipse.
Ila Lewis made it in time to experience the total eclipse, born at 12:31 p.m. to mother Robin McKee.
