COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The baby of a former Marine who was seen on an ultrasound 'saluting' her parents has been born.

Mehgan Merriott gave birth to 6 lbs., 12 oz. Kimberlynn on Friday at 2:03 a.m. at St. Francis Hospital in Columbus.

In September 2016, when Merriott went for an ultrasound, the child could be seen in the utero giving her family and country a salute.

Merriott's boyfriend, Robert Cooper Jr., is a former Marine and both parents are excited to finally meet their proud American girl.
