New Year, new arrivals!

As the clock struck midnight, it wasn’t just fireworks lighting up the sky. Some babies decided it was the perfect time to make their entrance into the world. Here are the proud parents who welcomed their bundles of joy at the beginning of 2024.

In a heartwarming start to the New Year, a couple marked the arrival of their baby girl named Kaur, at 12:00 on the dot at Brampton Civic Centre.

Barely 12 seconds later, the celebratory atmosphere continued as Trillium Health Partners announced the birth of another New Year’s Day baby—a boy— at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga.

Stephanie and Tino, proud first-time parents, celebrated their special moment with baby Antonio, weighing in at six pounds and 11 ounces.

“We are happy to report that baby and mom are healthy and well,” the hospital said in a recent statement.

What makes the occasion extra exciting, is baby Antonio happens to be the first grandchild on both sides of the family.


Shortly after, at 12:32, Etobicoke General Hospital welcomed baby Donker, who joined the ranks of New Year’s Day newborns.
