As Casperites brought in the 2022 New Year in their own unique and individual ways, a new life was being brought into the wonderful world of Wyoming.

Enter new born baby boy, Xakhia Cyrus, who was the first child born in Casper at 10:59 a.m. on January 1st, 2022, at Banner Wyoming Medical Center.

The official Wyoming Medical Center Facebook page shared a group of adorable photos along with a detailed caption that read:

New mom Virginia Wilson of Lander wasn't expecting the New Year baby when she planned a visit to Casper over the holidays. Her baby boy was due in a few weeks and she figured she had time.

He had other plans.

Xakhia Cyrus was born Jan. 1, 2022, at 10:59 a.m. at Banner Wyoming Medical Center in Casper. He was 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and 19.5 inches. He joins big brother, Jordan, who is 5.

"It was bittersweet," said Wilson of being away from her 5-year-old, who has yet to meet his new little brother. Mom and baby expect to return to Lander soon.
