Queen Arlene and her King Josue have just brought home their new Prince Sebastian Rivera. The 8 pounds 13-ounces bundle of joy was born at Westchester's North Shore University Hospital on 4/4 at 5:55 but just arrived home with his gorgeous mom, following a C-section birth. Although both are US citizens, Arlene is originally from The Dominican Republic and Josue is from Puerto Rico. These Bronx homeowners are health-care professionals who live on King Avenue.
Sebastian has his own room with a great sunrise view of Long Island Sound. When I met him today, he was and still is extremely quiet in his proud mother's arms, just moments after having been fed.
Sebastian is not only a healthy and handsome boy but a living doll with full cheeks, just like his mom, who was understandably exhausted and big hands and enough hair on his head to qualify as the youngest member of The Beatles, but I know his dad really prefers Aerosmith.
Nevertheless, this handsome baby boy, who is City Island's newest and youngest resident has big beautiful lips and is AMAZING https://youtu.be/zSmOvYzSeaQ As equal time demands, here is his mom's new favorite song https://youtu.be/XqZsoesa55w
Kudos and Felicidades to Arlene, who gets credit for doing most of the heavy lifting and Josue, who did his part and now must step up to become the great father I know he will be.
Sebastian's body and brain will quickly develop at an astounding rate during his first year of life. This tiny and precious newborn boy will quickly morph into a curious, active little human eager to explore the world. And before we know it, our newest City Island Prince of King Avenue will be a happy toddler. May God bless the entire household.
