KYLEE and Robbie Wieczorek's newborn son Thor has the best big brother you could ask for - and he even thought of his name.

Thor Cecil Wieczorek was born on July 5 at 3.05am at Gladstone Hospital.

Although it was a long and difficult labour, Mrs Wieczorek said nobody was happier than her other son Owen, 7, to meet Thor.

"He's wanted a little brother or sister for ages and it did take seven years," Mrs Wieczorek said.

"Owen's even sitting on the bed next to me now and he's not letting Thor go. He keeps looking at him and touching him and saying that he's cute."

Owen even suggested the couple name their newborn Thor, a name they didn't think would grow on them.

"When we first found out we were having a boy, we were running through names and involving Owen in that," she said.

"He said 'I've got a good name, what about Thor Captain America Ironman?'

"We sort of laughed at it and over the next few months it stuck and thats what we referred to him (Thor) as.

"We never thought we would name him that but when it came down to the crunch, it was a strong name and different."

Thor's middle name is Cecil, a name passed down from Robbie's grandfather.

A well behaved baby, Mrs Wieczorek said Thor looks just like Robbie and even shares her husband's time of birth and weight.

"He was born at 3.05am and also weighed eight pound eight ounces (3855g) like Robbie," she laughed. "He's pretty good like he just feeds and sleeps, feeds and sleeps. He loves cuddles, too."

Thor was two weeks early and it was a 20-hour labour at Gladstone Hospital.

"I want to give a big thanks to Wilma and Mel who helped deliver him. It was a pretty hard birth," she said.

"We got there in the end."

The Calliope family are settling back in at home and Mrs Wieczorek said she's remembering what it's like to be a mum again.

"You never forget, it's just different having a newborn again after so long," she said.
