Buffalo mother welcomes baby born Christmas Day

Posted at 10:18 PM, Dec 25, 2015

One Western New York family received a precious gift early Christmas morning. At 2 a.m., Amauryell Romero arrived weighing six pounds and eight ounces.

Mom Michelis Romero said the baby arrived a few weeks early but it was a welcomed surprise.

“It’s crazy because now I have to buy a birthday gift and Christmas gifts so we’ll see how it goes,” Romero told 7 Eyewitness News.

Romero already has two little girls at home so this is the first boy for the family.

Nurses at Women and Children’s Hospital say on a typical Christmas Day they have about five babies born per 12 hour shift, and Romero was the first – not only at this hospital but in the city.

“It’s a blessed day,” Romero said.
