The world's seven billionth baby has been born in a packed government-run hospital in the Philippines.

Weighing 2.5kg (5.5lb), Danica May Camacho was chosen by the United Nations to be one of several children around the world who will symbolically represent the global population milestone.

She was delivered just before midnight on Sunday amid an explosion of press camera flashes at Manila's Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.

"She looks so lovely," her mother, Camille Dalura, whispered softly as she cradled her tiny newborn.

"I can't believe she is the world's seven billionth."

Danica's name means morning star. She is a second child for Camille Dalura and Florante Camacho.

I wonder if the mother has read "A Modest Proposal."

Seven billionth since when? When they started counting? they couldnt truly know this, there must be at least one unaccounted birth in the world.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Would be kind of hard to calculate that this birth marked the 7th billion human alive.

On top of this logic dictates that there it is possible for another baby to be born around the same time if not more then 1 other.
