Elvis: "A Day in the Life"                                                                                                                        February 1, 1968, (Thursday)

NEW BABY GIRL!

Baptist Memorial Hospital, Midtown, Memphis, Tennessee.

 

Priscilla gave birth to a baby girl at Baptist Hospital in Memphis at 5:01 pm while Elvis and other members of the

entourage waited in a doctor's lounge specially set aside for their use. Elvis was so nervous before he left the house that

his grandmother had to remind him that it was Priscilla, not he, who was having the baby. A special detail of Memphis police, paid for by Elvis, stood by at the hospital over the next four days.
