First baby of 2022 born overnight at Desert Regional Medical Center

The Coachella Valley welcomed its first baby of the new year at Desert Regional Medical Center.

Mateo was born a little after 12:30 in the morning on January 1st weighing in at 6 pounds.

He is the first son in the family with three older sisters. His mother, Adriana Espinosa, said she wasn't expecting him to be born a day early, adding even though she was nervous, his birth is "a blessing in disguise because he literally was all I've been asking for."

Espinosa said 2021 was a tough year amid the pandemic. She said she caught COVID-19 earlier in the year and sending her four-year-old back to school had its challenges.

She said after losing one of her children two years ago, she hopes her newborn son enlightens their home again.
