ST. LOUIS — One baby was born with automatic bragging rights: the first St. Louis baby of 2022.

The Missouri Baptist Medical Center announced the bundle of joy was birthed at their hospital early New Year's Day.

Otto Kilian was born at 2:27 a.m. on Saturday morning, weighing in at 8 lbs., 12 oz., and 21.5 inches long. 

Otto and his mother are doing well, according to the medical center. 

Not only is Otto the first child of the new year, but he's the first for his parents as well. Scott and Jessica Kilian of South St. Louis will bring Otto home to his furry sister, Everest, an Australian Shepherd.
