HAMILTON couple, Wendy and Peter Dean, got the ultimate Christmas gift on Wednesday, with the arrival of their first child.
Chase Reginald Dean was born late afternoon weighing 4.1kg, just over nine pounds.
He is the couple’s first child.
Wendy said while December 25 was Chase’s due date she didn’t expect he would be a Christmas baby.
“We didn’t expect it at all,” she said.
“He was supposed to be about seven weeks early but went over that and arrived on his due date anyway.
“I had to have a caesarean which wasn’t planned.
“It’s a bit unfortunate because I can’t do much now, but I’m lucky everyone is here helping.”
