Christmas Day was an extra special one for three families this year - all welcoming their newest additions.
But none were more surprised with their Christmas baby than Renee and Patrick Lowe, who were visiting family on the Border from Ballarat.
Their third child Mason Patrick Lowe was born three weeks early and just scraped in to the December 25 birthday when he was welcomed into the world at 12.06am.
"It was definitely not expected," Mrs Lowe said.
"We booked into a caravan park here to visit family for Christmas and he wasn't due until January 15 so we thought we would be well and truly right.
"All my doctors back home told me to go and have some family time before bub comes.
"But I started getting these pains and I just knew he was coming early and he was just born on Christmas Day.
