Chasidish Family Has First NYC Baby Of 2010

WPIX Reports: Just 13 seconds after the ball dropped, baby “new year” came bouncing into the world.

“We’re proud, very happy, very excited,” said proud mom Brucha Strulevich, who hasn’t even picked out a name for the third addition to her family of all boys.

Following Jewish Orthodox tradition, the child will be named at his Bris.

The baby boy was delivered at Mount Sinai Hospital, which almost had the first baby of the year in 2006. That child arrived at 11:59 and 48 seconds, 12 seconds early.

“It was a very pleasant surprise,” said Doctor Michael Silverstein, who delivered the child. Silverstein says he was in induced and should have been delivered at noon New Years Eve, but the little guy fought to stay in, giving doctors and unusual battle that lasted more than 12 hours.

“Just took forever and ever,” he said.

Both baby and mother are doing fine.

The little bundle of joy weighed in at just 5 pounds, 1 ounce.

But, the family said the timing of the arrival was big surprise, especially for mom.

“We didn’t expect the baby to be the first baby of the year,” she said smiling.
