FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Little Asher Jon is only a few hours old, and he’s already making headlines.

Asher was born Friday morning at 11:18 a.m. at Sanford Family Birth Center in Fargo.

The Walvatne family made the trip to Fargo early in the morning from Fergus Falls.

Although Asher was not expected until the 6th, he was a light to start 2021 off right, especially after the challenging year of 2020.

”She’s a nurse in Fergus Falls so we were a little hesitant to try to have another child when the pandemic started,” Jon Walvatne said. “We just figured we wouldn’t put our lives on hold forever and we didn’t know how long it would be so we went for it and now we have Asher.”

Even though Asher was born ahead of schedule, he is a healthy 7 pounds 4.9 ounces.
