VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

"12:01," said proud Dr. Sharon Kopacz of Clovis Community Medical Center.

That's the exact time Baby Bella came into the world.

Bella is the first born baby of 2014 for the valley hospital.

Bella was born seven and a half pounds to proud mother Isabel Viramontes, and her high school sweetheart Genaro Rubio.

"Her goal today was to get the New Year's baby. That was her goal the entire day, and she got it," said Dr. Kopacz.

Just a couple of hours later, the world also welcomed baby Brea Mendoza.

Brea was born at 3:39 AM at the Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia.

At 19-inches long, Brea was born a little beauty.

The hospital presented a crocheted blanket to parents Susana and Oscar Mendoza, for giving birth to the hospital's first baby of 2014.

Daniel Leon Junior was also another first born for the Valley.

He was born at the Mercy Medical Center in Merced at 7:32 AM.

His adoring parents, Blanca Verduzco and Daniel Leon posed alongside baby Daniel for a photo shoot with the Merced County Times.

According to Daniel's mother, she nearly lost her voice during the 24-hour long labor.

All three babies and their mothers are reportedly doing well.
