Oh, baby! Opelika Fire welcomes seven little ones to first responder family


OPELIKA, Ala. (WRBL) – Oh, Baby!!! The Opelika Fire Department family has expanded with the addition of seven little ones in a matter of four months.

Left to Right:
Born on 8/8/19 to Firefighter Chase McConnell
Born on 8/13/19 to Firefighter Peter Martin
Born on 10/8/19 to Firefighter Blake Smith
Born on 10/26/19 to Firefighter Kevin Swatts
Born on 11/20/19 to Firefighter Bradley Bowen

Three perfect baby girls and four handsome baby boys were delivered to firefighters and their spouses between August and November.

The baby boom gives rise to the ole saying “there must be something in the water” at the Opelika Fire Department – and it had nothing to do with fighting fires.

Precious baby Weston Lee was unable to make it to the group picture. He was born on 10/24/19 to Apparatus Operator Rob Lee

The parents came together for a fun photoshoot Wednesday morning and invited News 3 along to share the story.

We will have more on WRBL News 3 starting tonight at 4:00 PM Central.
