Woman gets special delivery on Mother's Day: Baby Jaque

One valley mom had a special delivery this mother's day: she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

This isn't her first time having a baby, but it's certainly memorable.

Her bundle of joy was born at St. Joseph's hospital.

Amanda Humphries' mother's day gift weighs 7 pounds 7 ounces, is 20 inches long and for the past 14 hours, he's been sleeping.

"We were supposed to have a Mother's Day picnic, and instead I had a Mother's Day baby," said Humphries.

Humphries was due Monday, but her fifth child came early, making his entrance just before 4 a.m.

Little Jaque was the best Mother's Day gift she could have hoped for.

"It's a good feeling having him on Mother's Day. It makes the day even more special," said Humphries.

Surrounded by her family on Sunday, Humphries waited for Jaque to wake. Then came the moment when the baby's eyes met his mother's eyes for the very first time.

It's a mother's day gift that will last a lifetime.

"He's just going to be a blessed baby. He's coming into a big family. He has a lot of love and support," said Humphries.

She also got several gifts from her other children, including hand made cards, a poem and drawings.
