The northern Italian mountain town of Ostana had a population of 84 — until now. Baby Pablo makes 85. The newspaper La Stampa says Ostana is celebrating his birth with a party.

MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly delivering sweet news from the northern Italian mountain town Ostana, where they are welcoming the first baby in 28 years. Ostana had a population of 84, until now. Baby Pablo makes 85. The newspaper La Stampa says Ostana is celebrating his birth with a party, we assume with prosecco. And they've planted a model stork at the entrance to the town holding a small blue bundle. Congratulazioni. It's MORNING EDITION.
