At 2:51 a.m. on January 1, NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital welcomed its New Year’s Baby, Jacob Colmar-Espinosa.

Jacob weighs five pounds, seven and half ounces and is 18.5 inches in length. His parents, Diana Espinosa and Phillip Colmar, live in Long Island City, Queens, New York. Jacob is the couple’s first child.

“We are so thrilled to welcome Jacob into the world,” said Ms. Espinosa, tired but elated. “There really is no better way to kick off the new year!” Mr. Colmar noted the perks of his son having a particularly festive birthday. “He’ll have an amazing party every year, and we won’t even have to pay for it,” he said.
