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.
