A Knoxville couple welcomed the New Year with a baby boy.
Yusef Ali was due to arrive December 27, but his father said he thinks his son wanted to wait until 2013.
The baby was born right after midnight at Fort Sanders, which was a great New Year's surprise for the couple.
This is the couple's second child. They also have a 13-month-old little girl.
