Memphis is Fort Macleod’s New Year’s Baby

Fort Macleod didn’t have to wait long for its 2022 New Year’s Baby.

Memphis Amanda Joy Knelsen-White was born at 4:49 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 2, weighing seven pounds five ounces.

Memphis is the first child for Tatyana Knelsen and Bryce White.

“It feels great,” said Memphis’s father Bryce White. “It’s a fantastic way to start the new year. We want to thank everyone for the kind words. We very much appreciate it.”

Memphis and her mother are both healthy and doing well following the delivery by Dr. Alison Carter Ramirez at Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge.

Memphis arrived two weeks early. Since Tatyana had gestational diabetes, doctors induced labour on Jan. 1.

Memphis is Tatyana’s first baby and the fourth for Bryce. The newborn has older brothers Zander, Ciel and Riley.

Grandparents are Shona and Howard Archibald, great aunt is Amanda Knelsen, grandma is Kim White and great grandparents are Linda and Henry Knelsen.
