He may be a bit late to the party, but Bryson Taylor has claimed the title of first baby born in Muskoka in 2019.

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare officials report, the newborn arrived at Huntsville Hospital on Wednesday at 9:29am. He was delivered by Dr. Paul Bastedo, weighing in at seven pounds and measuring 19 inches in length. Bryson was happily welcomed by Novar parents Ryley Taylor and Rielly Spratt and his two-year-old sister Jaylyn-Rose Spratt.

MAHC will release details soon on the first 2019 baby born at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital site.
