Little girl first baby born on Vancouver Island in 2017


A little girl will forever be able to say she was the first person born on Vancouver Island in 2017.
Yiyi Chloe Wang was born at 2:09 a.m. on New Year’s Day, weighing six pounds.
The new parents tell CTV Vancouver Island, their daughter, who was born at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, wasn’t due until Jan 7.
“I used to talk to her while she was a little baby in my body,” said Jane Wang. “I told her that if you want to come out early, Jan. 1 might be the best day.”
However, the first baby to be born in British Columbia this year didn't waste his time getting here. A boy named Montgomery was the first baby to make his way into the province, promptly at 12:00 am PT.
He was delivered at the B.C. Women's Hospital to parents Dana and Peter Harlos and came into the world weighing eight pounds, 14 ounces. 
The first Baby in Victoria was a boy, born at VGH at 2:47.
