Welcome to the world, little one! 

Clara Anya, first baby of 2020 born at Essentia Health St. Mary's Detroit Lakes

Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes welcomed its New Year’s baby on January 1, 2020 at 4:16 p.m.

Clara Anya Wilson made her entrance into the world weighing six pounds, seven point eight ounces and is 18 and one-half inches long. Clara’s proud parents are Kristina and Shaun Wilson of Audubon. Clara joins 12 siblings and a niece at home.

“Clara’s due date was January 12, so we weren’t expecting to have the New Year’s baby, but we think it’s pretty cool having the first baby of the new year as well as the new decade,” mom Kristina says. “What a fun story to tell her as she grows up!”
