PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Brown University student may be able to lay claim to having the first baby born in Rhode Island in 2014.

The Providence Journal reports Watson Dingle came into the world at 12:10 a.m. Wednesday at Women's & Infants Hospital in Providence.

The hospital identifies his parents as Patrick and Yu-Ting Dingle, a doctoral candidate at Brown. Their boy weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces.
