Officials at North Shore LIJ Hospital said the seven-pound Nicolette Hunt was the first born on their campus in the New Year, as well as one of the city’s first newborns.

A second after the clock struck midnight, Nicolette Hunt came into the world. Officials at North Shore LIJ Hospital said the seven-pound baby was the first born on their campus in the New Year, as well as one of the city’s first newborns.

Eleni and James Hunt, of Little Neck, welcomed their New Year’s Day delivery, along with big sister, two-year-old Victoria. Hospital spokesperson Kristen Longo said the Hunts were aware of their daughter’s extraordinary timing as hospital staff closely monitored the clock during the delivery.

New York Hospital Queens also welcomed its first baby of 2012 — a 7-pound, 10-ounce little girl named Nina Love McConnell-Honore — born to parents Rose Honore and Duane McConnell of St. Albans.

“I feel great,” said mom Rose Honore. “I feel special and so does [the baby] — she is sweet, quiet and lovely. That’s why her middle name is Love.”
The family received a $1,000 savings bond and a congratulatory bouquet from the hospital.

Dr. Andrew Rubin, spokesperson for both Jamaica and Flushing Hospitals, claimed each facility welcomed a baby boy just after the New Year. Angeury Vargas was born at 1:39 a.m., weighing 7-pounds, 12-ounces at Jamaica Hospital and “Baby Boy” Carchi made his big entrance at 7:52 a.m., weighing 7-pounds, 8-ounces.
