First baby born in 2020

Sabrina and Tyson Turner welcomed their third child, Kenji Hiro Turner, into the world Thursday, Jan. 2 at 8:30 a.m. At 6 pounds 4 ounces, Kenji is the first baby to be born this year in Hood River. Alina Turner, 4, Kenji’s sister, said she initially wanted a sister but is content with her new brother. Kalani Turner, 12, Kenji’s brother, said he had no preference as to what sibling he would get. Sabrina and Tyson said they’re tired but excited to have their new baby, and that they are grateful for the amazing and friendly staff at Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital. Tyson said they had much support from his brother’s family, Kyle Turner, Elizabeth Turner, their kids Jocelyn, 12, Kathryn, 10, Trinity, 7, Elliana, 3 and his parents, Dave and Carrie Turner. Sabrina’s parents, Beatrice Seglias and Hans Seglias, live in Switzerland and couldn’t see the child in person; however, the Seglias said in an email to the News that they’d like to congratulate Sabrina and Tyson on their newborn and are proud to be grandparents of the child.
