Richard (30), a railway construction engineer from Londonderry, and Joy-Ann (31), from Belfast, who is now a stay-at-home mum, said they are both thrilled.
Byron Dennis Brewer weighed a healthy 8lbs 5oz when he was born at 8.29pm on February 1 at the North Shore Private Hospital, Sydney.
Joy-Ann said both she and Richard were “slightly stunned” when he arrived.
“We are both absolutely delighted though, and couldn’t be happier,” Joy-Ann added.
“Byron is a very handsome boy with big feet and big blue eyes, so he definitely looks like his Daddy.”
Richard and Joy-Ann are hoping to bring Byron to Northern Ireland in August for a family wedding.
“When we come back we want to have him christened in Knock Presbyterian Church,” his mother explained.
“It's where I was christened and where Richard and I married.”
The Brewers have said they look forward to the time when Byron is old enough to learn to surf.
