CASPER, Wyo. — The first baby born in Casper in 2022 was announced on Tuesday.

Xakhia Cyrus was born Jan. 1, 2022 at 10:59 a.m. at Banner Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, according to a release from the hospital.

He was 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and 19.5 inches.

He joins his big brother Jordon, age 5.

According to the WMC, mom Virginia Wilson of Lander wasn’t planning on having her baby over the New Year holiday when she made a visit to Casper since the baby wasn’t due for a few weeks.

“It was bittersweet,” Wilson told the WMC. Jordon stayed with family back in Lander and has yet to meet his new little brother.

The two will return to Lander soon, said the release.
