It's a girl!

Better late than never. 

At 7 lbs and 14 oz. Alora was the first baby born at Vernon Jubilee Hospital in 2018.

The little bundle of joy entered the world at 5:10 p.m. on Jan. 1.

The parents, Taylor Carey and Franjo Beg, received a gift basket full of goodies from the Vernon Hospital Auxiliary Crafters & Knitters, a teddy bear, gift certificates as well as a bouquet of flowers for mom.

Alora was born not too far behind Owen Harrington, who was born at noon on Jan. 1, 2018 — the first new arrival at Kelowna General Hospital.

The first baby born in the Okanagan was in Penticton, weighing in at 10 lbs. Lawson John Spain was born at 2:07 a.m.

And at 8 lbs 7 oz. British Columbia's first born in 2018 belongs to a Surrey couple. The baby girl was born nine seconds after midnight.
