AUSSIE BABY ~ Australian actor Alyssa-Jane Cook and her husband Gary Davis welcomed their third child on May 7th, 2007 at Sydney's Mater Hospital. Lucca James Anthony is little brother to Georgia-May 11 and Ruby-May 8. The baby weighed in at 8 lbs, 14 oz and was born on May 7, 2007 at Sydney’s Mater Hospital, weighing 3.7kg and measuring just over 20" long.

Alyssa-Jane shares her birth story with the Australian Women's Day Magazine. Her delivery was not complication free, first she was given the bad news that her obstetrician was on holidays and she’d been assigned to a locum; “It wasn’t an ideal situation but she turned out to be a very competent doctor – especially when we were down to the tin tacks of giving birth and things suddenly started going wrong.” AJ was assisted by birthing partners mom Diane and best friend Alison Gallagher and they could see something was wrong; “I could sense things were wrong. The midwife must have hit some panic button because suddenly in came about six people — including a specialist midwife. The cord was caught round his neck so the doctor had to reach in and try to release it and at that stage she started looking really concerned. Suddenly the umbilical cord split. It was panic stations then and they had to get the baby out quickly so he could breathe on his own.”

Lucca has broken the all girl baby pattern in AJ’s family; “Yes, we’ve broken the curse for now. My mum cried and I think my dad was very chuffed with having a grandson in the family. But we had another birth in the family since Lucca and she was another girl cousin, so maybe our boy was just a fluke!”

The couple discusses their name choice, Gary was given the honour to name their son and chose Lucca after the Tuscan town where the family vacationed last year; “We had been trying to have a baby for three or four years. We had gone down the IVF route and decided not to do it and had almost given up hope. Then we went on a trip to Lucca in Italy, where Alyssa’s mum lives, and had a wonderful time. Not long after returning from that trip Alyssa fell pregnant.”

Akinori Iwamura Baby


AKI DIARY ENTRY ~ Tampa Bay Devil Rays third baseman Akinori Iwamura shares his thoughts on his first season in the Major Leagues in a weekly blog on devilrays.com under "Aki's Diary". In the ninth installment, he writes of the birth of his son; "The big day finally came over the All-Star break, when my wife, Misaki, and I had our first child, a baby boy, Taiki. We are so fortunate to have had a healthy child; he was born on July 10 and weighed in at seven pounds, three ounces.

Originally we thought that he would be born on the Fourth of July, which would have meant missing some games. I would gladly have missed the games, and the Rays were more than happy to accommodate me if I needed to go, but I'm glad it didn't come to that.

Just having my own baby makes me feel like I have more responsibility than at any time in my life. So my life has changed a great deal. Now the baby comes first. Anything I do, I think about the baby first. It's only a few days after he's born, and as long as he's healthy, I'm happy. Once he starts crawling or walking or picking up baseballs, I'm going to be even happier; that's when I will have even more joy spending time with my son.

I am fortunate in many ways, like having a wife who understands I need to sleep for my job, so she has done the majority of the work when it comes to taking care of our new addition. If Taiki wakes up in the middle of the night, Misaki takes care of him. Right now, it looks like my wife is OK to take care of the baby on her own. She has the energy to do that. But once she becomes tired, I'll help out more. Everybody asks me, so I'll confess: I have not changed a diaper yet. But I have fed him.

While I've felt a great deal of change in my life -- good changes -- with the addition of Taiki, our dog, Nutts, hasn't handled the change so well. I suddenly feel the jealousy from Nutts because of the baby. So my wife is taking care of the baby, and I'm taking care of Nutts."

Taiki ~ Japanese; 大 (tai) large, great and 輝 (ki) radiance, shine.
