Valya Warner was the first baby delivered at an Anchorage hospital in 2018, at 2:07 a.m. at the Alaska Native Medical Center to parents Rene Warner, 35, and Richard Warner, 34.

The family is from St. Paul Island in the Bering Sea; the 6-pound, 12-ounce girl was delivered in an unexpected cesarean section after the family celebrated New Year's Eve.

"I think we pulled up right at midnight," Rene Warner said.
