Stettler’s New Year’s baby arrives

Bowen Keith Allen born New Year’s Day

Bowen Keith Allen is Stettler’s 2019 New Year’s baby born to proud parents Brittany and Charles Allen.

The Allens are from Oyen and decided to have their baby in the Stettler Hospital instead of Medicine Hat because they said Stettler is a little bit closer and their doctor is in Stettler.

“More than anything we’re just happy mom and baby are both healthy,” said Charles.

Bowen weighed about seven and a half pounds and came 10 days early.

The Allens have one more son, Kaleb, who is 18 months old.
