Kimberley’s new year’s baby was born to the Jensen family on January 3 at 2:41 p.m. to Mom Alexandra and Dad Levon.

Baby Oliver was born at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, weighing in at 7lbs, 8oz and Alexandra says both her and Oliver are doing great.

“He’s adjusting really good, but we haven’t gone out in the snow yet,” said Alexandra. “He’s eating like crazy and gaining weight, he’s just a really happy baby boy.”

In terms of being the first Kimberley family to welcome a new baby in 2019, Alexandra laughed, saying they are happy he arrived when he did.

“He was due in December so we’re just really happy he came.”
