Pittston Girl Makes Top 5 In National Baby Contest

PITTSTON TWP. — A 10-month-old child from Pittston has made the top five in Live! with Kelly and Ryan’s “Oh Baby Contest!”

Ophelia Mecadon’s mom, Simone, has been very busy on social media trying to get as many votes for her daughter as possible.

“So, family friends, viewers, participants and really anyone that wants too, should vote,” Mecadon said.

Voting closes at 3 p.m. today and you can vote by visiting KellyandRyan.com (click on “vote” for your favorite photo and/or video); facebook.com/LIVEKellyandRyan (react to your favorite child’s photo); instagram.com/LiveKellyandRyan (“like” your favorite photo); and twitter.com/LIVEKellyRyan (click the heart to “like” your favorite photo and/or video).

Mecadon said the whole experience is just so surreal.

“Words can’t describe how excited we are,” Mecadon said. “We’re calling friends, family and really everyone we know to get out and vote. But regardless of the outcome we’re thrilled to have such a happy, healthy baby and we’re really grateful for all the love and support everyone has shown.”

Fran Mecadon, Ophelia’s father, said his family feels blessed.

“We’re thrilled to have made it this far, to represent Pittston,” Mecadon said. “I think we have a really good chance, even though all the finalists are beautiful. Hopefully the public will agree with us.”

The winner will be announced during Friday’s episode of Live! with Kelly & Ryan, which airs at 9 a.m. on WNEP.
