FORT BRAGG, N.C. -

On Wednesday, Womack Army Medical Center on Fort Bragg celebrated one of the first births of 2014 in central North Carolina.

Cameron Andrew Dalrymple Jr. was born at 12:04 a.m. Wednesday. His mother, Jane, and father, Cameron, both served in the Army, most recently in South Korea.

Cameron returned just three months ago and is now hoping for an extended assignment at Fort Bragg to spend more time with his family.

At birth, Cameron Jr. was 19.5 inches long and weighed 6 pounds and 5 ounces.

"It was perfect for me," Jane said. "I was terrified I would have trouble or complications with the birth. And I don't know if it's his size, but I didn't have problems, especially for a first mom."

Wednesday night, Jane was treated to a special meal that is a perk for new mothers at Womack Hospital. She chose to have a steak dinner.

The special meals usually include some sparkling cider also.
