Georgetown County welcomed the first baby of 2014 at Waccamaw Community Hospital, said hospital spokeswoman Margaret Lamb.

Michael Link, named after his father Michael Link, was born New Year’s Day. Mother Jessica Nock and the 7 pound 13 ounce baby are doing fine, Lamb said.

Link was born at 4:53 p.m. Jan. 1. The family lives in Socastee.

Lamb said no babies have been born at Georgetown Memorial Hospital yet. A second baby was born at Waccamaw Hospital, Lamb said, but she did not have the child’s name late Thursday.

Calls to Conway Medical Center and Grand Strand Regional Medical Center were not immediately returned.
