Aahan Mishra was Prince Rupert’s first new resident of the year born at 10:04 a.m. on Jan. 1, at Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.
Weighing six pounds and two ounces, he was welcomed by parents Anand and Deepika Mishra as well as his older sister Aahana.
Originally, Aahan was due for Dec. 29, 2021, but arrived late.
“I think the baby wanted to come on January first,” the now father-of-two, Anand, said.
However, it’s not the birthdate that matters, what matters to them is they have one boy and one girl, he said.
“The family is complete,” Anand said.
The most important part for the family is that their baby boy and his mother are healthy.
In Northern B.C., the first baby was delivered at 12:09 at the University Hospital of Northern BC in Prince George.
