Keily (pronounced kay-lee) was born at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center at 7:12 a.m. on Jan. 1 and weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces. Keily is also a younger sister to her brother Kevin, who is 1 1/2 years old, according to hospital officials.
The first baby born in Glendale in the New Year arrived at 4:24 a.m. Jan. 1 to first-time parents and Glendale residents Elina Hovhannisyan and Roubik Rostamloo.
Their son David, who was due on Dec. 31, was born at Glendale Adventist Medical Center weighing 6 pounds and 3 ounces.

At Verdugo Hills Hospital, Roger and Erica Fajardo, both 29 of Northridge, welcomed Dominic at 6:25 a.m.
On Saturday night, the Fajardos hosted a quiet New Year’s gathering at their home with family and friends. They went to sleep at 1 a.m., but awoke at 3 a.m. when Erica went into labor.
“We didn’t expect a New Year’s baby,” Roger said beaming. “We’ll take it.”
Dominic, who is their first child, was due on Jan. 12.
Nineteen inches tall, Dominic was born weighing 6 pounds and 11 ounces.
“Everything everybody says about it is right,” said Roger about the birth. “It’s great, it’s nerve-racking, it’s exciting. All the clichés you hear are correct.”
