Miracle baby a big blessing for couple

BIANCA Jade Robson is a miracle baby.

After being told they had a 2% chance of conceiving, Courtney Lindeberg and Luke Robson couldn't believe their luck when Courtney fell pregnant.

"I had a cyst on my ovaries but we were told we were pregnant," Ms Lindeberg said.

"It was a surprise but she's definitely a blessing."

Not only is Bianca the first child for the couple, she's also a first in the Lindeberg family.

"She's my parents' first grandchild and my grandparents' first great grandchild," Ms Lindeberg said.

"My family is from Gladstone and they have already visited her."

Bianca's name was a surprise to the couple, too.

"We didn't know the sex until she was born," Ms Lindeberg said.

"We had picked out Frankie or Xavier if it was a boy.

"When she came out she was a Bianca. Now we have to go home and paint everything pink."

She was welcomed into the world on Saturday, weighing 4400g.

Bianca was born 11 days after she was due.

Despite her late arrival, Bianca's mum is as happy as Larry.

"She's very quiet and placid," Ms Lindeberg said.

"She's so easy to look after and she's only cried twice since I've had her."

Ms Lindeberg, 20, and Mr Robson, 23, will take home their bundle of joy today.
