NYC's first baby of the New Year born in Queens

- Hospitals around the country claim to have given birth to the first baby of the year but this one is definitely a contender.

The little girl weighed seven pounds and 11 ounces when she was born.

Closer to Quebec City, the first child of the New Year was born overnight at approximately 3:31 a.m.at Saint-Francois d'Assise hospital.

University Hospital Waterford delivered a baby girl at 12.23am.

Harry Jacob Ferguson arrived at Dr Gray's Hospital in Elgin as the bells were still chiming to herald the New Year.

Khoza said before she gave birth she didn't pay any attention to the time because she was in pain and was in labour for a long time.

The Cork hospital also had four baby boys born later in the morning.

Mother and child, whose identities were not revealed, are doing well.

Christine said they only arrived at the hospital at 7pm yesterday, adding: "We weren't quite expecting it to happen as quickly as it did but we're absolutely delighted, the staff were just absolutely wonderful".

Two Toronto hospitals say the first babies of 2018 were born at the stroke of midnight. "The due date was January 10th", new dad Imran Nazir said.

The baby weighed 8lb 2oz after being born at 12.32am.

In China, more than 44,000 births will occur in the first 24 hours of the year, and in Nigeria, more than 20,000.
