Oamaru has welcomed its first new face of 2014.
Tomas Maxwell James Fraser was born at 11.05am on Thursday, January 2 to the delight of parents Steven Fraser and Carole McColl.
Tomas was fashionably late to 2014, having been due on December 28.
He weighed 9lbs 2oz.
Mr Fraser was lost for words over the birth of his son.
“It’s amazing, I can’t even describe it.”
He had been worried about the birth, but it “couldn’t have gone any better really”, he said.
The couple were happy to welcome Oamaru’s first baby of the year to the world, he said.
