New York - Hospitals across the tri-state area welcomed the first babies of the year not long after the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve.

One baby was born at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, a spokesperson for the hospital said. The baby’s parents live in Queens.

The 7 pound, 13-ounce boy born to Eli and Adina Derdik at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park at seven seconds after midnight.

“It’s as close as I can remember” in a 22-year career with the Northwell Health system, hospital spokeswoman Michelle Pinto said Tuesday morning in a phone interview with Newsday.

The Derdiks, observant Jews from Kew Gardens Hills, Queens, will wait to name their boy until after a bris next week, but for now so they are calling him “007.” According to WABC-TV. They sounded “happy and excited,” Pinto said.
