ATLANTA – Two Emory hospitals rang in the New Year with new
bundles of joy.
Emory University Hospital Midtown welcomed its first baby of the
New Year at the stroke of midnight -- exactly 12:00:00 a.m. Emory
Johns Creek Hospital’s first baby of 2018 arrived at 4:18 a.m.
At Emory University Hospital Midtown, baby boy Luca weighed 6
pounds, 11 ounces. Mom Jillian and dad Antonio said he was due on
Dec. 29, but was a little late arriving. They had no idea he
would be a New Year’s baby.
At Emory Johns Creek Hospital, baby girl Stella arrived at 4:18
a.m. on New Year’s Day. She weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Mom Grace
says Stella was almost two weeks early.
“When we showed up at the hospital much earlier than planned, we
thought she would be a New Year’s Eve baby, but she waited until
New Year’s Day to arrive,” says Grace. “We are so excited.”
Both moms, both dads and both babies are doing well.
