TULSA, Oklahoma -

One family is getting a head start on their child's college savings fund. Vivian Nicole Williams was the first baby born Thursday at Saint John Medical Center, she arrived just after midnight.

She and her parents got a $1,529 college savings plan. Thursday was May 29th, or 5-29, and the Oklahoma 5-29 College Savings Plan used the day as a reminder to parents to save for college.

Vivian is Sarah and Mike Williams' fourth child; all four are under seven years old.

"It's a really big blessing for us. We are excited about it and I think it will be a good motivation for us to start college savings plans for all of our kids," Sarah said.

The Williams say they had no idea about the sweepstakes and were actually scheduled for induced labor at about 4:40 Thursday morning.
