AUCKLAND, New Zealand (January 5, 2000 – Radio Australia)---The first baby born in the new millennium is "progressing well" but is unlikely to leave the hospital until next week.

The baby boy, born at 12.01 a.m. New Year's morning at Waitakere Hospital in West Auckland, was transferred to the special care unit of another hospital where a spokesman said he is doing well "but will not be discharged for several days."

The baby, who does not yet have a name, is the fourth child in the family. He has three sisters.
