Oh, boy!

The new year is off to a lively start as Maxim Olenyukh made his world debut at midnight on New Year’s Day at Coney Island Hospital, making him the city’s first baby of 2015.

The strapping sweetie — born to new mom Olena — weighed in at eight pounds and eight ounces, according to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corporation. His fellow class of 2033 members made their grand entrances minutes later throughout the borough.

Parents Shafiq and Sofia Adnan of Sheepshead Bay welcomed their 19.6-inch daughter — who did not have a name immediately after her birth — at 12:18 am at Maimonides Medical Center in Borough Park. The youngest Adnan tipped the scales at eight pounds and six ounces.

First-time parents Jing Yang and Zhaojin Lin greeted their daughter Sheena Lin — the first baby born at the Lutheran Medical Center — at 12:35 am. The brand-new baby was 20.25 inches and weighed five pounds, 10 ounces.

Canarise parents Nathaniel and Sandra Clouden celebrated the birth of their 19-inch son, Chandler Michael, at 2:56 am. The baby bundle, born at New York Methodist Hospital, weighed 6 pounds and 11 ounces.

Congratulations to all of 2015’s proud parents.
