Meet the BVI’s first baby born in 2023

There are few things in the Virgin Islands that give as much hope as a baby born on New Year’s Day.

For 2023, Najeeba Lynch-Hackshaw and Nathan Hackshaw gave themselves and the territory the perfect gift of life, delivering a healthy baby boy on January 1 at the Dr D Orlando Smith Hospital.

The baby boy was delivered around 9:07 am with the help and professional care of nurses and doctors at the hospital.

He weighed 3.85 kg and was presented with gift baskets from the National Bank of the Virgin Islands and BVI Health Services Authority.

    Is there anything as an anchor baby in the BVI? In order for a child to acquire citizenship, one of the parents must be a citizen.

    Why are some people so horrible? A new life has been brought into the world. Either congratulate the couple or scroll on past!

    The crude and disrespectful comments are not necessary. It’s God that made all of us and not we ourselves. Congratulations. Take care of that little one in Jesus name.
