A Houston couple is celebrating their new bundle of joy in the wake of chaos and destruction in Texas caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Khristhian and Kayla Estrada welcomed their baby boy one day after evacuating, three weeks earlier than they expected to meet their first son together.
A doctor induced Kayla Estrada’s labor not long after she endured high stress levels walking in neck-high waters, KHOU reported.
The couple named their son Noah -- a name they had chosen before the storm hit.
“I’m major happy and thankful that he’s healthy because that was one of my concerns,” Kayla told KHOU. “The water ... it smelled like gasoline. We were in there for so long ... The stress of it. I didn’t know if it was going to hurt him in some way. We’re happy that he’s healthy.”
