Babies born on Father's Day Weekend

Not many dads would pick a hospital room when deciding where to spend their Father's Day.
 
But, in this case, parents told us spending the weekend at St. Vincent was a gift.
 
New father Joseph Caufield said this Father's Day gave him a feeling like no other.
 
"Serendipity. When we were bringing up the baby carrier everyone was saying 'Happy Father's Day' and that's pretty exciting," Caufield said.
 
He welcomed a his first child Michael into the world. 
 
Caufield told us he and his wife were planning to take Michael home Sunday.
 
He said they're anxious but excited for this next chapter. 
 
"I know how much is riding on our shoulders to be good parents, but also how happy it is to have him in the family," Caufield said.
 
Just down the hallway, another parent celebrated his Father's Day baby, but it wasn't his first time being the star of the holiday.
 
James Wardrope said, "it is really special to welcome in a new one, especially on Father's Day. It is. It's very touching." 
 
Brooks became the sixth boy in the family this Father's Day Weekend.
 
Wardrope says every year, he remembers the important role he has as a dad.
 
He lent a piece of advice to the new father a wing over.
 
"You need to patient. Take your good days and your bad days, but the good days definitely out run the bad ones," Wardrope said,
 
"He's a beautiful gift from God. We're thrilled to have him, and we're thrilled to be able to rest and relax adter the work of bringing him home," Caufield told us.
