AMBER Mahutu and Steve Barker didn't find out what gender their new child would be.

At Amber's 20 week scan, their baby was sitting in an unusual position.

"The doctor said she thought it was a girl but she couldn't really see properly," Amber said.

But they finally found out on Tuesday, when their daughter Bonnie Grace Barker was born.

"She's got her dad's facial features, and big hands and feet.

"I think she has more of my skin tone though ... she's very cute."

A little sister to Sade, Kelsey and Mya she will be very looked after by her older sisters.

Kelsey, aged 16, was there at the birth.

"We made that decision (to be there) together.

"It made it pretty special," Amber said.

Bonnie was born at 8.59pm at the Gladstone Hospital weighing 3830g.

It was Amber's first child at Gladstone.

"The birth all went according to plan, it was great.

"It was over in three hours, which was my fastest so far.

"All the midwives were really helpful and attentive," Amber said.

But they still looked forward to going home today.

It's been seven years since Amber has had a baby around the home, so her teenaged children Sade and Kelsey are excited to help out.

"It's going to be strange having a baby around the house again."

"Sade and Kelsey are very excited to baby-sit," she said.
