Lucas Greyson Javier first Savannah baby born in 2016.

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah couple is now the proud new parents of a bouncing baby boy, who just happened to be the first baby born in Savannah this year.

Lucas Greyson Javier weighs 6 pounds 12 ounces. Baby Lucas was born at Memorial University Medical Center Friday at 3:36 pm. His mother, Jeanelis Reyes, and Father, Al Javier, came to the hospital around noon.

They said they had no idea they were going to have Lucas Friday because he wasn't due for a couple of weeks, but of course they are thrilled he is already here.

"We can relax and start this new journey with two little ones now. A four year old and a newborn, which should be interesting," said Reyes.

Congratulations to all the parents of New Year's babies born all over our area this first day of 2016.
