Rapid City welcomes first baby of 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Regional Health Rapid City Hospital welcomed its first baby born in 2020, and it is a girl.

Baby Maher was welcomed into the world by mother Kayla and father Devin at 9:24 a.m. New Year’s morning. She is 20.5″ and weighs a healthy nine pounds ten ounces. The Mahers say that a name for their baby girl is still pending.

With three other babies expected on New Year’s Day, the Mahers seemed surprised to hear that they won the race.

“It was pretty neat news, we were told it was kind of coming down to a wire and that there was a couple other people.” said Devin. “But we managed to luck out and beat everyone else.”

The New Year birthday girl joins the family with an older brother and sister.
