One metro family got a present they definitely don’t plan on returning.

Lashaina Woods and her husband Michael became proud parents of baby Caleb James Woods at 4:44 AM Christmas morning.

He was the first boy born at Mercy Hospital Tuesday.

Caleb weighed in at four pounds and six ounces.

His due date was actually January 6th but for this family, he’s their Christmas miracle.

“This is the best gift ever. We did not expect it so this is truly a blessing,” said Lashaina Woods.

Caleb is the couples’ first child.

They are spending their Christmas resting comfortably at Mercy Hospital.
