First Baby of 2019: Brady Sullivan of Geneva, 12:17 AM
We don’t know for absolutely certain whether Brady Sullivan of Geneva was the first baby born in Kane County in 2019, but we do know he was the first at Delnor Hospital in Geneva, because we have a news release and a photo to prove it.
Thanks to the folks at Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital, we can share that Brady was born at 12:17 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, to proud parents Megan and Patrick Sullivan.
Brady weighed 8 pounds, 5.7 ounces and was 21 inches long.
Congratulations to the Sullivan family, and best wishes for long life and a happy new year!
