Make that Oskar Gary Frankenstein, who made his entrance into the world four days late and after 14 hours of labour on Tuesday at Winter Park Memorial Hospital.

The baby's grandmother Jennifer Frankenstein tells WKMG the family is "super excited." She said Oskar is her first grandchild and the Frankenstein family's first baby born on Halloween, although she does have a 13-year-old daughter who shares the same birthday as "Frankenstein" author Mary Shelley

Winter Park is near Orlando in central Florida.
