(Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – Friday, January 3rd, 2020): As the country celebrated the big arrival of the new year, a mother celebrated her own big arrival: a newborn baby boy delivered on the first day of 2020.
Little Denerdo Quatela Jr was born at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre in Providenciales at 9:25 p.m. to mother Latavia Williams. He weighed 3.3 kg and 47 cm in length at birth.
Latavia said she was delighted with her new arrival, and Denerdo Jr is her first child. She added that she did not expect little Denerdo Jr to be the first baby of the year or decade, and hopes he will look back at this occasion very fondly. He was born two days before his due date.
To commemorate the new year, Denerdo Jr was decked out in a tiny white and blue onesie and hat emblazoned with a cute sneaky fox, which is reflective of his growingly visible and vibrant personality. During the media photographs, he was swaddled in yellow.

We wish you and your family the very best, and the atmosphere to welcome your birthday’s will always be filled with celebratory fireworks.”
