According to WSPA-TV, Eclipse weighs 6 pounds and 3 ounces and is about 19 inches long.

Greenville Memorial Hospital in SC posted the news on its Facebook page, along with a photo of Eclipse and her mother, Freedom Eubanks.

Eubanks said her family was first "shocked" over the baby's unique name, but now thinks it was a great idea. Because she was born on the day of the unusual solar event, her parents gave her an unusual name: Eclipse.

Greenville Memorial Hospital gifted 11 babies who were born on the day of the total solar eclipse a souvenir onesie.

Eclipse Alizabeth Eubanks, as the newborn is now legally known, wasn't the only baby born in the hospital Monday. I've had some rude comments about her name and I've had some very sweet ones but it's a name - all that matters is that my daughter is healthy and she is here.

Eclipse's dad, Michael Eubanks, added: "Wow, my child is born on something that happens every so many years".

"Welcome to the world, Eclipse".
