HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Just seven minutes into 2010, an Oahu family really had something to cheer about.

Salvadore and Claudia Torres welcomed the first baby of the new year in Hawaii. Ethyn Torres was born at Tripler Army Medical Center and weighs a healthy 8 pounds 4 ounces. The couple is originally from Chicago.

Lance corporal Salvadore is stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, in Kaneohe.

Claudia's due date was supposed to be December 30, but little Ethyn decided to wait another two days.

We're told both mom and baby are resting comfortably.
