As we rang in 2023, some of us enjoyed champagne toasts, smooches with our loved ones and/or watching the ball drop on television (or in real life). But as the clock struck midnight on January 1, these North Jersey mamas were at the hospital bringing new life into the world. A way more memorable New Year’s Eve than freezing your tush off in Times Square, if you ask us!

And their new bundles of joy have already achieved social media “fame,” making their big debuts on the medical centers’ Instagram pages as the first babies born in 2023.
