Laura Holland (33), from Newtownards, Co Down, and Robert Holland (39), from Newtownabbey, Co Antrim, welcomed Callum Matthew Robert Holland into the world at 3.04pm on May 12, weighing 8lb 3oz.
Laura's parents, Muriel and Lee Robinson, were at her side during the birth of their first grandson at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock.
“Laura and Callum are doing really well,” Robert said. “We are over the moon. I can see me and Laura in him, but it’s hard to tell at this stage.
“He’s great. It’s my 40th next week, so he is a nice birthday treat.”
Callum is Robert’s first born child, but he is also stepfather to Laura's 15-year-old daughter Rebecca.
“We want to thank everyone for all their support,” Robert added.
“I can't wait for my mother Margaret, father Robert, brother Timothy, sister Jennifer and niece Rebecca to meet Callum.
“And we want to send our love to all our friends and family back in Northern Ireland.”
