PHOENIX -- Arizona's Family grew by one Monday when our April Warnecke welcomed Charlie Austin into the world.
Caught on camera, big brother Greer looked proud -- and perhaps slightly awed -- to be a big brother. Charlie had a good grip on his brig bro's finger. It's already clear that they're going to be best friends and have some fabulous adventures together.
Born Monday morning, Charlie weighed in at 8 pounds and was 20 inches long.
April called in during "Good Morning! Arizona" Friday to chat with Kaley O'Kelley and Javier Soto
She explained that Charlie is named for her grandfather.
"Of course, you know Greer is named after one of our favorite towns, so we picked Austin for a middle name because that's another one of our favorite towns," she said.
April is naturally head-over-heals in love with the new little man in her life.
"My heart is going to explode!" she wrote on Facebook Friday morning, thanking everyone for their support and kind words. "I feel so incredibly blessed."
Mom and baby are doing great. Dad and big brother are fabulous, too.
