BT Toronto | posted Thursday, Jan 2nd, 2020

As 2020 ushered in on Wednesday, hospitals across the GTA welcomed its first babies of the new year and a new decade.

One of the first babies — if not, the first baby in the GTA — was born at Humber River Hospital in North York just after midnight.

“Just seconds after the stroke of midnight, Baby Mohammed was born … the first baby to be delivered in Toronto,” the hospital said in a tweet.

Another baby just couldn’t wait a minute longer. In Mississauga, a baby boy — weighing eight pounds and two ounces — was born 50 seconds after 12 a.m. at Credit Valley Hospital.

“The Walia family is thrilled to welcome their first child. Both baby and mom are healthy and doing well,” Trillium Health Partners said in a release.

Just under 15 minutes later, Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto welcomed its first baby of the year. The baby was born at 12:13 a.m.
