(CNS Local Life): Baby Aelene Lopez was born nearly two weeks early in 1 January, surprising everyone, especially parents Aylin and Roberto Lopez, when she became the first baby to be born in the Cayman Islands in this new decade.

Aelene was delivered at 5:36am on New Year’s day at the Cayman Islands Hospital, according to a release from the Health Services Authority.

“We didn’t want to know if we were having a girl or boy until the due date, which was originally January 14th, so we got two surprises,” said the proud new father.

Baby Aelene weighed 5 pounds 15.5 ounces and was delivered by obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Edward Caudeiron.

The maternity staff presented the Lopez family with a gift basket donated by opposition MLAs Alva Suckoo and Anthony Eden and a new stroller donated by NCI Cayman Islands.
