Smithers, Stewart Share Bragging Rights for Northern BC's First Baby of 2019
Northern BC's first baby of 2019 was born in Smithers -- to parents from Stewart.
Mom Nikki, dad Will and two-and-a-half-year-old big sister Avery welcomed baby William Ross to the world at 1:01am New Year's morning at Bulkley Valley District Hospital.
He weighed six pounds, 14 ounces.
However, he wasn't the first baby born in the province this year -- that honour falls to a little boy born at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster at 12:01 yesterday morning.
Terrace's New Year's baby is an eight-pound-12-ounce girl, born to Claire and Shane Wiebe at 2:33 yesterday afternoon.
She joins big sister Ava in their growing family.
