SACRAMENTO - The Sacramento-area's first baby to be born in the new year was a little girl who made her appearance just one minute after midnight Wednesday.
She is Milan Le Dao, the brand-new daughter of Sidney Le and Andy Dao of Elk Grove.
"I'm real excited. I'm very happy," said Andy. "Wow!"
Sidney said they came to the hospital Tuesday at 7 a.m. and expected their child to be born at 7 p.m. that evening.
"But she was very stubborn," said Sidney. "She wanted to be a New Year's baby."
Milan, the couple's first child, arrived at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento at 12:01 a.m.
