Darlene Henley, 32,
welcomed a new baby boy
on New Year’s Day.
He is the first
B.C. baby of 2015.

The little boy
was born five seconds
after midnight on January 1.
He was born
at the Peace Arch Hospital
in White Rock.

Darlene was very surprised.
“I couldn’t believe I had
the first baby.”
Darlene expected
to have her baby
on December 25, Christmas Day.
“It’s all very exciting,”
says Darlene’s family.

Darlene does not have a name
for the newborn.
“We like Lincoln, Sean …
Marcus,” she says.
