Royal Irony For Parents Of Newborn Baby Boy


When Leigh Lindstrom announced to her friends that she was pregnant she joked that she and Her Royal Highness Kate Middleton would battle it out for coverage in People Magazine.

Lindstrom told Channel 6 News Monday from the maternity ward at Methodist Women's Hospital in Omaha, "I can't believe we ended up delivering on the same day, how ironic is that!"

Leigh and her husband Brett, welcomed their new son Barron Dan Lindstrom into the world at 5:07 am. He weighed in about a pound less than the Royal baby in London at 7 pounds 6 ounces.

The Lindstrom's spent much of the day watching coverage surrounding the birth of Prince William's first child who is now third in line for the crown.

When asked what young Barron is in line for, his father Brett laughed and said, "I don't know about any inheritance we'll have to talk to the grandpas about that, certainly not from me, maybe some farm land...who knows! "

The gifts for young Barron give some indication of what his future may hold: cowboy boots and a Husker blanket.
