Nova, Darreus and Maria McCrea

Catching Up with the First Baby

Friday, January 31, 2020 | Womens and Childrens
Nova Ruby McCrea, the first baby born at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus, is celebrating her first birthday this month.

Her proud parents, Darreus and Maria McCrea, say their happy little girl’s favorite food is strawberries, and her favorite words are “stop it” and “mama.” She has two bottom teeth and a big smile.

When she’s not running in her walker, Nova likes to dance to the theme song from the movie, Boss Baby. Nova’s most exciting birthday gift is the news that she will be a big sister.

The McCreas are expecting a baby boy in June.
