WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — While many of us celebrated the New Year with a glass of champagne, the nurses and doctors at New Hanover Regional Medical Center were hard at work delivering New Year’s babies.
At 12:30 a.m. Allison Lopez became the second baby born in New Hanover County in 2014. Her mother Angelica went into labor around 2 p.m. Tuesday as the family sat down for lunch.
This is the Lopez family’s second child. Dad Manuel says they are overcome with joy at the birth of their healthy little girl, who arrived five days early.
“I feel real happy, because I have a beautiful girl and a beautiful family,” Manuel said. “Everything is good with my baby, my wife and my family.”
