Women's Hospital Welcomes First Baby of 2016

Published: Jan. 2, 2016

Laura and Nikolas Glennie were hoping for a tax deduction, but baby Lukas had other plans.

The Gretna couple, pregnant with their first child, welcomed their son at 12:20 a.m. on New Year's Day and earned the honor of first baby born in the Metro in 2016.

Lukas was actually scheduled to arrive around Christmas. His dad, a big Iowa Hawkeye fan, was looking forward to watching the Rose Bowl with his son on New Year's Day.

Omaha media met with the family and shared their big news:
