ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - One Yooper family is celebrating in this time of coronavirus, in a unique way.
Parents Alisha and Kevin Rudden, of Ishpeming, welcomed their baby girl, Charlie Jo, at 8:07 a.m. March 24 at UP Health System – Bell hospital in Ishpeming. She weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces, and measured 19 inches long.
Due to hospital restrictions during this COVID-19 pandemic, visitation had to happen through the window.
In a post on TV6 & FOX UP’s Facebook page, Kevin said, “Adding to your family during a pandemic, responsibly and painfully. Love and hurt.”
Kevin told TV6 & FOX UP that baby and mom are both doing well.
Charlie Jo joins older siblings Kayla, 23; Whitney, 19; Lilly, 13; and Zeb, 11. Lilly and Zeb attend Negaunee Middle School.
Welcome to the world, Charlie Jo, and congratulations to your family!
