Baby Tiara Samoa’s first for 2018

FIRST BABY: Mother Chara Fatu holding her newborn baby, Tiara New Year-Fatu, with family and hospital staff sharing in on the joy. Baby Tiara was Samoa’s first baby of 2018, born at the stroke of midnight.

And because Samoa is among the first countries to welcome the new year, the baby boy could possibly be the world’s first baby in 2018.

The parents of the baby, Chara and Fiaula Fatu, hail from the village of Satapuala.
