Welcome Beverie, the year's first National Day baby born at midnight
THE first baby born on National Day arrived on the stroke of midnight, to her parents' surprise.
Beverie Goh Rui Xuan was delivered naturally at Thomson Medical Centre right on the dot, just in time for Singapore's 51st birthday.
The 2.9kg girl is the first child of marketing manager Benjamin Goh, 28, and accounts executive Jade Ho, 27. "I feel very happy and honoured," she said. "National Day will be another significant day to look forward to."
The couple received a gift pack worth nearly $1,000 from the hospital, which included diapers, milk powder and a book on nutrition.
