Baby Covatta is Born!
By Brad Mangin

Photo by
Catarina Hawk Covatta was born March 30, 2002 at 2:12 a.m., weighing in at 5 pounds, 10 ounces, and reaching the lofty heights of 19 1/4 inches.

Mother and father, Kim and Chris Covatta are doing well. Catarina is sleeping through the night. Covatta says that the cats area little miffed, but they are getting used to the baby.

Catarina was delivered in a scene right out of a movie as Kim's water broke at the house around 1am (on March 30, the baby's due date) and a crazy Chris rushed her to the hospital. Kim only had one sock on while Chris drove like a madman to the emergency room hitting very high speeds on the roadways of Texas. Once there he ran her through the hospital by pushing Kim in a wheelchair until they finally got her in a birthing room.

Once in the room they where joined by two nurses and baby Catarina was born within minutes without a doctor. "The baby just flew out," said Covatta. The nurses then grabbed the baby on the bed. "It was like scrambling for a loose football!" Covatta added.

"It was awesome!" said Covatta as he talked about cutting the cord in the delivery room.

"She is so cute!" Covatta said as he got ready to rush out the door Monday afternoon to shoot a freelance assignment. Covatta has another mouth to feed now and is working hard to make sure Catarina is well taken care of.
