A Shepparton mother's baby shower was interrupted by the early arrival of her new son.DARREN LINTON May 12, 2014 3:48am
Alia Bayaca was supposed to be enjoying a surprise baby shower on Saturday, but instead of a restaurant, relaxation and a movie, she delivered a surprise of her own, a baby boy just in time for Mother’s Day.
After Alia went into labour on Saturday morning, Castiel Stanley Ash entered the world at 7.47
‘‘I peeked into his little basinet and the staff had a surprise for me, they had printed his footprint and it said happy Mother’s Day,’’ she said.
‘‘I’d forgotten, but I work in child care, so two weeks ago I was helping the kids prepare for Mother’s Day.’’
Castiel arrived 10 days early and on the day his grandmother, Aila Aguilar, arrived in Shepparton to throw a baby shower.
‘‘It was supposed to be a surprise, but instead we were the ones who were surprised with a baby boy,’’ she laughed.
The family were all headed home yesterday and Alia was still looking forward to a belated baby shower.
‘‘I was a bit disappointed I didn’t get to do everything,’’ she said.
