"We are overjoyed and feel like the luckiest parents in the world."

Hilary, 24, was thrilled when she found out she was pregnant and admitted she couldn't wait to meet her son.

She said: "People keep saying to me, 'Sleep right now. Get your sleep!' I keep saying, 'I just want the baby here! I want to play and I'm ready to see what he looks like.' "
