A couple from Kilsyth celebrated New Year’s in a different fashion as they welcomed in the first child to be born at the Angliss Hospital in Ferntree Gully just 40 minutes after New Year’s.
Kirri Mort and Dean Hunter, of Kilsyth welcomed in Charlie, their first child at 12:40am on January 1.
The little bundle of joy had impeccable timing and was born precisely on the day he was expected, weighing a healthy 3.8kgs.
“His due date was 31 December, so when I started thinking I was in labour; ‘I thought surely not, babies don’t come on their due date,’” Kirri said.
“He pushed over into 40 minutes the next day.”
The couple admitted that they were quite chuffed when they heard that Charlie was the first baby born at Angliss Hospital in 2018.
Kirri said she was delighted to have Charlie on New Year’s and said she wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way.
“It was certainly different to most New Year’s; it was good though and was such a special way to bring in the New Year,” she said.
“His birthday will always be special and he’ll always have a party and celebration.”
