I've noticed that the first egg to pip is almost never the first to hatch. It's almost like they got anxious, and then they realize it's not quite ready.

It's also completely normal for it to be up to 24 hours from pip to hatch. I've had early pippers go even longer sometimes.

Glad it hatched ok.
