First baby of 2018 welcomed in Northern Nevada

RENO, Nev (KOLO) - Reno residents Cora and Brian Borello were told 9 months ago by doctors their baby's due date was January 1, 2018.

Cora still didn't want to believe it, as she was in the delivery room at Renown in the late hours of December 31.

"That was actually really shocking. I thought they were joking around. They were like, hey, he's the first baby of the year. I'm like ha, you are funny," said Cora holding her new baby boy.

Sebastian is the couple's second child.

Cora says Sebastian, like his sister Freya, who was born 2 hours shy of July 4, will both have fireworks on their birthdays.

She says she was in labor for a long time and that her son is the last child she wants to have.

But because Cora loves children so much, she says she and her husband want to adopt five more.

Sebastian was born at 1:04am January 1, 2018.

The second baby of the new year was born at St. Mary's Regional Medical Center 2 hours later.
