SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - A Springfield couple became new parents on Christmas, after their baby decided to arrive more than a week early of his due date.

Chris Trevino and Olivia Klavinger said they were spending Christmas Eve at their grandparents' house in Cottage Grove.

They didn't expect to rush to the hospital that night, since Baby Avery's original due date was January 2, 2018.

"I thought it was fake. I thought I have just having Braxton Hicks," said Olivia.

"We thought Avery was going to past the due date on this. We thought he was going to stay in that for the long haul," said Chris.

Olivia went through eight hours of labor before Baby Avery was born at 6:20 a.m. Monday morning at 7 lbs. 9 oz.

"Our family are all excited...overjoyed. Christmas stopped early this morning. Everybody's already came and seen him," said Chris.

They said they'll get to take him home tomorrow.

Riverbend Hospital said they had three babies that were delivered on Christmas, as of 12:30 p.m.
