NEW born bub Dontae Docherty didn't know it but he spent his first Mother's Day watching his dad play footy for Brothers against Emu Park.

Ms Johnson was happy to spend her first mother's day as a mum at the footy but was also hoping for a win for her partner, William Docherty.

Dontae Isaac James Docherty was born on April 26 at Gladstone Base Hospital, making him a little under two weeks old.

With Ms Johnson's partner coming from a long line of Williams, she said she was after a different name for her young man.

"I didn't quite make it up," Ms Johnson said.

"A friend did and I think it suits him.

"Everyone loves it and I'm glad it's different from the family name," she said.

Ms Johnson and Mr Docherty first met close to two years ago at NAIDOC and with both taking a liking to the other they decided to make things more exclusive.

Mr Docherty has recently started working at Gidarjil as a land manager and since Donate was born has had a different kind of alarm.

"Dontae's his little alarm when he sometimes sleeps in," she said.

So far Ms Johnson said her new boy has been well behaved, only crying if he wants to feed.

But it appears he's been pretty popular with the family spoiling him with new clothes and toys.

"It's amazing being a mum," she said.

Ms Johnson hopes Dontae can grow up to be a good big brother and as for a job, well that will be up to him but being a miner wouldn't be such a bad thing.
