Meet Hawaii's first born babies of 2018

Posted: Updated:

Ringing in the new year with new life, fireworks marked the arrival of Hawaii's first babies of 2018.

"He likes the spotlight it turns out," first-time parent, Johnny Wilson said as he admired his newborn.

First-time parents Amanda and Johnny Wilson say their bundle of joy wasn't due until January 2nd, but arrived just in time to be Hawaii's first baby born in the new year. Making his debut twenty-three minutes after the clock struck midnight in the Aloha State on Monday, baby boy Frankie Wilde Wilson was born at Maui Medical Center, weighing 8 pounds 13 ounces and 20 in half inches in length. 

"Our nurse came in and she was like.. 'I've been working for 8 years and I've never gotten the New Years baby and now I'm going to have it'.. and we were like wait what .. what are you talking about.," new mom, Amanda Wilson said. "Best way to ring in the New Year. Every year we try to top ourselves and I think we're going to have to give up that game."

Not too long after little "Frankie Wilde" was welcomed into the world, another baby was born over at Hilo Medical Center at 12:57 a.m.

Oahu's first bundle of joy of 2018 was born at Kaiser Moanalua Medical Center. New parents Charmaine Irorita and Jordan Siri say they welcomed their baby girl, Melody Jane Irorita-Siri at 1:28 a.m. on New Years Day. She weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces. 

"She wasn't due for another three weeks, but she wanted to come out early," Melody Jane's mother, Charmaine Irorita said. 

Irorita told Island News although their baby girl wasn't due until January 20th, 2018, she still arrived just in time to celebrate the new year with mom and dad.

"At least next year when there's a bunch of fireworks that'll be cool for her birthday," Siri added. "It's an amazing feeling nothing can compare to bringing a baby into the world."
