This Newborn Had Perfect Timing, So Her Parents Named Her Eclipse

Little Eclipse was born at 8:04 Greenville Memorial Hospital.

As a nice touch, all of the babies born at Greenville Memorial on the big day of the total solar eclipse - including Eclipse and 10 others as of Monday afternoon - were gifted a special eclipse-themed onesie, all of which sport emoji-esque suns wearing sunglasses. Parents Freedom and Michael Eubanks originally planned to name her Violet.

SC is one of the 14 USA states that falls in the path of totality, a 70-mile-wide ribbon that will cross the country from west to east. Eubanks, now a mom of two, said she had plans to watch today's eclipse with her eldest daughter, but went into labor around midnight.

The 30-year-old allowed 14 earned runs in 12 innings across three starts for the Mets earlier this season. Over that stretch he is 0-6 with a 10.19 ERA and opponents are hitting.385 against him with seven homers.

It's a historic total solar eclipse and for the babies born on August 21 the day is even sweeter.

The decision to legally name her Eclipse was done at the last minute, according to the hospital. "We're probably going to call her Clipsey", Freedom said.
