2 infants born at 12:03 p.m. close to the tie for the primary child in Las Vegas 2021

Two parents unwittingly had a tie for the first baby of the year in the Las Vegas Valley.

According to a spokeswoman for the Sunrise Healthcare System, babies were born at MountainView Hospital, Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center on Friday at 12:03 p.m.

Avaya Rose Villela was the first baby to be born at MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas in 2021, Sara Sibley said. She was born on New Years Day at 12:03:13 PM, was 18¼ inches in length and weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces.

For most years, parents have spoken to media teams about the birth of their first baby in the valley, but this could be done over the phone due to COVID-19 restrictions, Sibley said. Photos can also be published instead of allowing journalists to enter the hospital.
