(WFRV) – For some Wisconsin families, there is even more of a reason to celebrate this New Year’s Day. Join Local 5 in welcoming the first babies born in 2022 in area hospitals.
Hylee Hartmann – ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Appleton
On January 1, two very lucky Kaukauna residents became parents to the first baby born in 2022 at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Appleton.
Ashley and Jacob Hartmann welcomed their new 5lbs 10oz and 18.5-inch bundle of joy, Hylee Reagan Hartmann, at approximately 12:48 a.m., just 48 minutes after the new year dawned.
And baby Hylee did not only receive the honor of becoming the first baby born in this hospital this year but was also lucky enough to become a little sister to 2-year-old Harlynn Hartmann.
Medical officials say at this time the Hartmann family is resting and enjoying time with their new little girl.
Domanique – HSHS St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay
A family in Neenah started the new year with a big surprise: the newest addition of their family came earlier than expected.
According to HSHS St. Vincent Hospital, on Jan. 1, at approximately 12:42 a.m., Sandra of Neenah, gave birth to a 7lb 6oz and 19 ½ inch long baby boy named Domanique.
Medical officials say Domanique arrived ten days before his due date, giving mom, Sandra, a bit of a shock. However, now that he’s here, his family couldn’t be more thrilled.
And Domanique’s birth isn’t only special because it came as surprise, but because his early birth landed him the honor of being the first baby born in 2022 at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay.
HSHS officials say that both mom and baby are healthy and doing great and ready to take on the new year together.
