Meet The Capital Region’s First Baby of 2017
Most of us are excited for the new year but this local baby was kicking and screaming. In my career I've had the chance to write about a lot of young celebrities but this one will be hard to top.
According to the Times Union, Ally and Richard Santos, a young couple from Cohoes welcomed their newest addition to their family just one minute into the new year.
That's right, little Amanah Santos was born on Jan. 1 at 12:01 am. That officially crowns Amanah as the first Albany baby of 2017.
Amanah was a bit early as she wasn't expected until Jan. 4, but when Ally went into labor early morning on New Years Eve, she was on her way to be a local celebrity.
This child is an inspiration to what beauty life has to offer and how a new year can be a change and fresh start. Let's welcome Amanah to the the capital region and the world.
