St. Vincent welcomes first baby of 2023



Billings, Montana – The first baby of 2023 was welcomed at St. Vincent Healthcare in the Magic City this morning.

Aidoneus Strock, a boy, was born at Saint Vincent’s Labor & Delivery Unit just before 2:30 am.

Aidoneus was born healthy, strong, and without any complications, just as the Greek name denotes.

He is 19 inches long and six pounds, 14 ounces in weight.

Jessica Roddy, the mother of Aidoneus, stated that she had never anticipated giving birth to her first child on the first day of the year.

“It blows my mind. Honestly, I never thought I would be having the first baby of any new year. So, the fact that it happened was pretty awesome,” explained Jessica.

Aidoneus’ birth, according to the father, was nothing short of a miracle.

“I am so ecstatic to see him. I was a little worried, Jess was going to have complications afterward and she didn’t. Neither of them had any problems. They came out all clean. It was all I could have asked for,” emphasized Brody.
