Baby Jack couldn't wait for Christmas either
WHOA baby, awkward timing!
This Sunshine Coast bub must have felt the Christmas cheer going on around him when he decided to make his big arrival into the world.
Jack was a welcome Christmas gift for parents, Chantel and John Martin.
The couple welcomed Jack into the world at Sunshine Coast Private Hospital at 4.21am.
They had had a long drive up the Bruce Hwy in the family Commodore from their home in Wamuran, near Caboolture.
Mr Martin said he was relieved Jack decided to make an appearance early in the morning because it made the 40-minute trip a bit easier.
"You try to get there fast but you've got to do the speed limit," he said.
Jack gave his mum a much-appreciated gift, too.
He arrived in just 15 minutes.
"We cut it a bit fine," Mrs Martin.
"We literally just made it through the door.
"We had 15 minutes from the time we walked into the hospital to when he was born.
"He wasn't waiting around, he was in a hurry.
"I'm very thankful for a quick labour this time around."
Jack was due on December 22 so the couple had been waiting anxiously to welcome him into the world.
"It was a bit surreal, we suspected once we'd gone over that he would be born on Christmas Day... everyone joked about it and now it's actually happened."
While she tried to hold off until Boxing Day, Mrs Martin quickly realised Jack wasn't going to wait.
And while he's the best possible Christmas gift for his proud parents, they knew it would be harder to make his birthday a special one on Christmases to come.
"We need to find something special for him so he doesn't feel like he's missed out," Mrs Martin said.
"It would've been nice to have had him on Boxing Day, but I knew that wasn't going to happen."
It's not the first time the business banker and her truckie husband have spent the holidays in a hospital.
The couple's first child, daughter Emma, was born on both Easter Monday and April Fool's Day 2013.
However, Emma is a bit too young to have her Christmas overshadowed by her new baby brother.
