AURORA, Colo. (KCNC) – The presumed first baby born in 2023 in Colorado was not to be in the running.

Jimena, the daughter of Aurora’s Jessica Alvarez and Eduardo Jimenez, came into the world more than a month early.

“We never thought she would be born in January, let alone in early 2023. It was a big surprise,” Jessica Alvarez said.

The 4-pound, 4-ounce baby was born at 12:07 a.m. Sunday. She is the couple’s first child and was delivered at UCHealth Hospital at the University of Colorado in Aurora.

CBS4 was not made aware of a baby born in the state closer to the start of the new year.

But make no mistake, there was competition.

Kai Miles Thorne, weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces, was born at 12:29 a.m. to parents Amanda Mahler and Miles Thorne of Colorado Springs at UCHealth Memorial Hospital North in Springs.

Noah Stephen entered at 12:42 a.m. Stephen was born at Intermountain Healthcare’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette.

Not far behind was Joevonni Rae Baez, a 5-pound, 7-ounce bundle of joy born to Krimson Avila and Joseph Baez at 12:56 a.m. at Denver Health Medical Center.

Joevonni’s parents received a gift from the hospital’s Newborns in Need program “to help with the dirty work” for the coming year: 2,023 diapers.
