HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Several Connecticut families welcomed new members on New Year's day. 

The first Connecticut baby of the new year was welcomed by Branford residents Harrison and Amelia Levy at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital just after midnight. Their first daughter, Layla Rose, weighed in at  8 pounds and 10 ounces. 

The Hospital of Central Connecticut welcomed Amari Lee Rosado into the world at 12:04 a.m. New Britain parents  Lahquitta Weaver and Mike Rosado are delighted with their 5 pounds, 4.8 ounces bundle of joy after 11 hours of labor.

"She was actually supposed to be on the 23rd. She came early,"  Weaver said. "This was a total surprise."

Weaver said she was working on New Year's Eve and didn't expect the childbirth. 

"I was really surprised my water broke at work and I work in Middletown so, I had to rush back here to New Britain and call my doctor,"  Weaver said.

Siblings 10 year old Michael, 8-year-old sister Maleiah and two-year-old Sanai said they were thrilled to meet their new sister Amari, who was sporting a bib that said "my first new year." 

"She's here and she is my little angel,"  Weaver said.
