The first baby born in 2020 at St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson holds a special meaning

to parents Miki and John Zilnicki of Riverhead.

The new mom is an optometrist and owner of Twin Fords Optometry and Vision Therapy in Riverhead — so appropriately her newborn son John Anthony was born on the first day of 2020 at 7:17 p.m.

According to the family, the bundle of joy is happy and healthy, and his big sister, Daisy, is thrilled for the new addition to the family.
