It’s a new year, and babies around the state were born just after the ball dropped.

One baby was born at Middlesex Hospital at 12:01 a.m., and could possibly be the first baby that was born in Connecticut in 2017.

Baby Gia Burns was born at Hartford Hospital at 12:29 a.m.

She weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces and was 21 inches long. Baby Gia was born to Angela and Michael Burns from Southington, who also celebrated their one-year anniversary on Dec. 31, 2016.

Lucas Li was born at 5:18 a.m. at Saint Francis Hospital, weighing 6 pounds 9 ounces.

He is the second child of Yan Zhuang and Xiaochen Li of Vernon, who moved here from China four years ago.

Lucas joins a 23-month-old sister.

The second baby born at Bridgeport Hospital was Arianna Lassus, who was born at 5:39 a.m.

She weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces, and is the second child for mom Caressa Jones, who also has a 6-year-old son.
