We don't mean to play favorites but when it comes to babies born on the first day of the new year, Brookfield Zoo's Grey Seal pup takes the cake in 2014!

The unnamed baby boy, born at 7 a.m. on Jan. 1, weighed 25 pounds at the time of his birth and is expected to quadruple the eight of his 10-year-old mother Lily.
