New Year's baby surprises parents
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Staff Reporter
He was barely six hours old, but yesterday the bouncing baby boy was already the centre of media attention.
The as-yet-unnamed baby, born after putting Mom through two days of labour, arrived seconds after midnight on New Year's Day to become Toronto's first baby of 2007, weighing in at 7 pounds and 13 ounces.
"I was nervous and scared," said the infant's 32-year-old father, Patrick THANARATNAM, shortly after his first child arrived -- at about 40 seconds into the new year -- at Scarborough Grace Hospital.
It was his first time holding a newborn, THANARATNAM admitted. "My hands were shaking."
Seconds after the Toronto baby made his debut, another boy was born at Mississauga's Credit Valley Hospital -- officially at 12: 01 a.m. -- to become the 905 region's first arrival of 2007.
Komal and Surinder PURI, who had been awaiting the arrival of their baby for a day, were quick to dub him with the nickname "Krish," after the traditional Hindu name Krishna.
Krish is their third child and second son.
"We are excited and pleasantly surprised about the timing," said proud father Surinder, who admitted to watching television as the baby arrived.
"As soon as they rang in the new year, the baby was born," he said, adding he was watching revellers in New York's Times Square celebrate as his wife was giving birth.
It's not just moms and babies who have it rough.
THANARATNAM, who said he had never picked up newborn babies because he was afraid of dropping them, will also have to pay $100 to his sister, who bet on the infant's New Year's Day arrival.
For his wife, Mary Julian BENADICT, the anxiety all came from giving birth for the first time. "But when I see his face now, I am very happy," she said in Tamil.
When it comes to the baby's future, his mom said, "We are going to educate him well, so he can become a doctor."
The couple, originally from Sri Lanka, was married more than two years ago.
While THANARATNAM has lived in Toronto for about 15 years, his wife moved to Canada in the fall of 2005.
In Mississauga, Krish's mom, Komal, said the delivery of her third child wasn't as easy as the first two, adding she is still in some pain.
"Delivering a baby is not easy," she said, adding she went into labour at 5: 45 p.m. the night before.
Commenting on the days ahead, she said, "It's a boy, so I don't know how much trouble it's going to cause me."
The couple plans a big celebration in about six weeks, and will go to a temple for blessings.
As for Toronto's first baby, his name will in part be decided by one of the baby's uncles and his baptism will take place in another month.
And as for the baby becoming a doctor, the father says, "Her wish is my wish."
