The New Year started with a voracious appetite for the first Hawke's Bay baby born in 2016.

Kortearz TJ Williams-Eyles was born at Hawke's Bay Hospital on New Year's Day at 4.35pm, weighing 6.2 pounds.

"He's a bit of a piggy," says Hastings mother Sharmane Eyles, well placed to judge her son's feeding with him being her fourth child.

She said she was lucky to have had four quick and easy births. "I'm always in here for less than an hour and they pop them out."

She expects to return home very soon to her partner Tyson Williams and a family celebration, after which there would be a lot of visitors.

While her third child is perhaps a little jealous of the new arrival "the other two are very happy".

The holidays were a good time for a new baby, the stay-at-home mum said.

"The kids get to spend time with him instead of jumping straight back into school," she said.

With the knowledge that it was to be a boy, naming the new arrival was an all-male decision.

"My son and my partner already had a plan. Mama just names the girls."
