导读:Danica在媒体聚光灯的环绕下,于31日零点前2分钟在菲律宾首都马尼拉一家医院降生。她将成为全球范围内几名被宣布成为象征性的世界第70亿人口的婴儿之一。联合国高级官员前往菲律宾接见了这个小婴儿及其父母,并送给Danica一个小蛋糕作为礼物。联合国人口活动基金会代表Ugochi Daniels 表示,世界第70亿人口的降生为菲律宾带来审视人口问题的契机。据悉,菲律宾目前是世界上位居第12位的人口大国,拥有9490万人口,中国和印度依然占据前两个席位。

Guessing game: In reality, the world's population might not reach seven billion for another eight years

What's all the fuss about? Danica is oblivious to the significance of her arrival

What's all the fuss about? Danica is oblivious to the significance of her arrival

Tiny and innocent, little Danica May Camacho peers out at the world just moments after her birth at a hospital in the Philippines.

Wearing a hat to keep the heat from escaping through her head, she nestles against her mother's skin as her proud parents look on.

However, Danica's birth is not only significant to mother Camille and father Florante. She is one of the world's symbolic seven billionth occupants.

The Philippines, ranked 12th as the most populated country in the world, joined the rest of the world as it welcomed its symbolic seven billionth baby in a simple ceremony at the hospital.

Danica was born two minutes before midnight and arrived to a celebratory cheer at the packed Government-run Jose Fabella Hospital in Manila.

Weighing 5lbs 5oz, Danica May Camacho was delivered amid an explosion of media flash bulbs in the delivery room at Manila's Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.

Mother Camille Dalura said: 'She looks so lovely. I can't believe she is the world's seventh billion.'

The baby is the second child for Camille and her partner Florante, who quietly stood in a corner wearing a white hospital gown as television crews and photographers crowded to get a shot of his daughter.

The parents and the baby were met by top United Nations officials in the Philippines, who presented the child with a small cake.

There were also gifts from local benefactors including a scholarship grant for the child's study, and a livelihood package to enable the parents to start a general store.

Also on hand to witness the landmark event was 12-year-old Lorrize Mae Guevarra, who was declared the world's symbolic six billionth baby in 1999 and is now in the sixth grade.

Guevarra said: 'I am very happy to see this cute baby. I hope like me she will grow up to become healthy and well loved by everyone.'

The child is one of several in countries around the world being declared a symbolic seven billionth human.The United Nations has declared October 31 as Seven Billion day - the date when the  globe's population is estimated to reach seven billion.

It was hoped she would arrive at exactly midnight, but she was delivered two minutes early.

Health Secretary Enrique Ona said the arrival of the world's seven billionth baby also presented the Philippines with an opportunity to assess population related issues.

According to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) State of the World Population Report, the Philippines is the 12th most populous country in the world with 94.9 million people.

China continues to have the biggest share of the population at 1.35 billion, followed by India at 1.24 billion.
