TOWSON, Md. (WJZ)—A special delivery of the first day of the year. A woman from Hanover delivers the first baby of the New Year at GBMC, and she is darling.

Jessica Kartalija reports the little peanut couldn’t wait to start the New Year.

One of the first babies of the New Year was born seven minutes after midnight at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

It’s been an exciting start to the New Year for the Branton family.

While Marylanders celebrated the start of the New Year, little Brooklyn Jane arrived one month before she was due.

“She was born as soon as the ball dropped, I guess a couple minutes after,” said Dolly Branton, mother.

Seven minutes after midnight to be exact. Brooklyn couldn’t wait to start the New Year. At 5 pounds, 13 ounces, she’s strong and healthy.

“She was awake for 45 minutes,  just staring around. She was very alert and she didn’t need a bottle until 6.  She’s been doing fabulous,” Branton said.

This is the third little lady in the Branton family.

“I think that it’s really cool that she’s first of the New Year,” said Danielle Branton, big sister.

Dad couldn’t be more proud of his little sorority.

“I’m outnumbered. Dave and his dolls,” said Dave Branton, father.

We caught up with grandpa, taking five from baby duty.

“I couldn’t be happier. She’s healthy, and that’s the main thing. The other is just a little icing on the cake,” said Dan Carroll, grandfather.

Mom says it’s time to start working on her New Year’s resolution.

“To get on a diet and that’s really it,” Dolly Branton said.

“We got a new baby, a new year, we’re just really blessed,” Dave Branton said.

All of the hospitals haven’t reported their numbers just yet, but Brooklyn was one of the first babies born in the entire region.  Congrats, Mom and Dad.

GBMC is one of the busiest hospitals with about 4,000 babies delivered there every year.
