Hazel's Arrival

 
Josie Balka and Kelton Balka

Josie and Kelton Balka just welcomed their baby girl! Hazel Sloane Balka arrived Monday, June 14th, 2021, weighing 6 lbs 3 oz and measuring 18 inches long. Visit the UPtv website to see the first photos of little Hazel and read a quote from the new parents. We think Hazel looks like big sister Willow.

  2. She looks just like daddy so that's why she looks like Willow,but as they get older they might not look a lot like each other,like for example Erin and Carlin both look like dad but don't look much like each other and Alyssa and Michael both look like mom but not like each other, we'll see as they get older.

    2. Actually Carlin is a total copy of her mom; there were pics of young Kelly, they are like twins. Erin also looks like her mom, just with blond hair.

  5. I agree at 2:52. US WEEKLY must have devoted at least a full 30 seconds to writing those captions!

    Best wishes to the happy family. Their new little one is so precious.

  11. Congratulations Josie and Kelton (and big sister Willow) on the arrival of Hazel. It's neat that she was born in Flag Day. Now it will be a day to remember forever as Hazel's birthday. Haley P. from Colorado
