A Sri Lankan couple living in Rome had the honour of being the parents of the first baby born in the New Year.

The baby had been born ten seconds after the dawn of the New Year at St. Philip Neri’s Hospital in Rome.

The couple, Prasad Bandara and Madubhashani Yapa, had been living in San Pietro in Rome for the past few years. The Italian media had reported that the baby, named Italo Bandara by his parents, had brought honour to Italy.

The Mayor of Rome Ms. Virginia Raggi had visited the hospital in the early hours of January 1 to congratulate the child’s Sri Lankan parents.

    AT LEAST WE HAVE BEEN HONORED FOR SOMETHING. ... SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.

    Congrats to the couple. But this can't be true. There are plenty of others countries which ushers in the new year before Italy. Not a single baby was born in those countries after the new year dawned?

    Lucky baby. Hope the baby qualifies for Italian citizenship and live a happy and honorable life which we are derived of.
