WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A South Florida mother was delighted to give birth to a baby girl on Mother's Day.

Elizabeth Shamel gave birth to Serenity K'alani Reign Perry at St. Mary's Medical Center on Sunday.

Serenity weighed in at 7 pounds 6 ounces.

The family lives in Riviera Beach. This is their fourth child.

"It's different. It's exciting," Shamel said. "I've never thought I'd have a baby on Mother's Day, but we did. She's here and it feels great."

She went on to say that Saturday was her birthday and she was glad that little Serenity will have her own day to celebrate her birth.
