HARTFORD -- A South Windsor couple received a special gift the day after Christmas.

Michelle Wehr went into a labor on Christmas Day. She gave birth to baby Lana Noel at Hartford Hospital around 6 a.m. this morning, while her husband Brett is thousands of miles away.

Brett is a Marine currently deployed in Romania and couldn't come home for the holidays.  However, he was able to Skype his wife to see his little girl today.

He'll be reunited with his wife and meet his daughter for the first time in person in April.
