A baby girl, believed to be Hong Kong's first newborn of 2009, was delivered at 12.07am yesterday, with her mother saying she hoped her daughter could bring luck to Hong Kong's economy. The baby, whose parents are both from Fujian , was born at Hong Kong Baptist Hospital and weighed 3.1kg. Accompanied by her husband, the mother, Huang Mingyue, came to Hong Kong to give birth due to the one-child policy on the mainland. The couple already have an 18-month old son in their hometown. 'I never expected my daughter to be born on January 1. I feel very happy that my little girl was born at this hospital ... I hope that she can bring luck to Hong Kong's economy,' Ms Huang said. She said her daughter's birth caught her by surprise, coming two days earlier than the scheduled delivery date. The second baby born after midnight yesterday, at United Christian Hospital, was also a girl who weighed 3.27kg. She was born at 12.30am. The third newborn, a 3.32kg baby boy, arrived a minute later at Tuen Mun Hospital. His mother Mrs Wong, 28, who already has two daughters, described the arrival of her son as a big new year gift. 'I didn't know I was carrying a baby boy and I never expected the baby would be born on January 1,' she said.
