THE first child of the New Year in Marina Alta is from Javea. Cándido Alejandro was born at 9.26am on January 1, 2020 in the Hospital of Denia. His father Cándido is from Javea and his mum Elisabeta is a Romanian national. The couple’s first baby is a Javea resident and was born in perfect condition following a natural birth.
Cándido thoughtfully gave his parents time to ring in the New Year and eat the traditional 12 grapes before midnight. The couple arrived at the Hospital at 3.30am, as they started the year with a very special arrival.
