Sydney couple Dane and Suzie Williams chose to give birth to their second child, Luella Grace, in Echuca.
Sydney couple Dane and Suzie Williams received an unexpected Christmas present with their second child, Luella Grace, arriving at Echuca hospital on Christmas morning.
Mrs Williams was due to give birth on New Year’s Day, after planning to spend the Christmas and New Year period in Echuca for the birth.
‘‘It was a bit of a surprise. We missed out on Christmas morning, but it was a nice surprise,’’ she said.
The couple went to hospital about midnight, meaning they were unable to spend Christmas morning with their first child, Rose.
Luella’s arrival also meant Suzie missed out on Christmas lunch with her family, but she did not entirely miss out.
‘‘The family brought me down roast pork, ham and turkey
‘‘We chose to come to Echuca to have our baby and I am glad we did.
‘‘The staff at the hospital have been great.’’
