A boy, still unnamed, and Lexie-Anne Dubois (R) made history as the first babies born in the region in 2020.

Just as the clock struck 12 a.m., the Anand family welcomed Ottawa’s first baby of 2020—a little boy.

Born at the Ottawa Hospital's general campus, baby Anand, who doesn't have a name just yet, weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz.

His mom, dad and three older sisters say they're thrilled.

A few hours later, Lexie-Anne Dubois became Gatineau’s first baby of the New Year when she entered the world at 2:07 a.m. weighing 7 lbs., 2 oz.

The Outaouais Integrated Health and Social Services Centre says mom and baby are doing well.
