HONOLULU (KHON2) — Some families are in for some sleepless nights at the start of the new year.
Say, “Hello!” to baby Maya. She was born at Kapiolani Medical Center at 12:05 a.m.
She weighed just over seven pounds and measured 19-and-a-half inches long.
Mom and Dad said that they couldn’t be more excited to have a baby girl.
“For me, words can’t explain this right now,” said Maya’s father, Patrick Martin. “I’m so stoked. We’re both so excited to have her here physically in our arms and like I said, we’ve anticipated this. She’s here, there’s no feeling that can describe seeing her, hold her, and touch her. Everything else after that is all love, you know.”
Baby Maya has two older brothers.
Kapiolani also welcomed a baby boy at the stroke of midnight, making him the first baby in Hawaii to be born.
Other firsts babies at other hospitals include Castle Medical Center’s first baby was born around 7 a.m.
Then The Queens’ Medical Center’s first baby was born at 7:17 a.m. at the Punchbowl facility.
