AURORA, Colo. -

Katie Medley, the wife of Aurora shooting victim Caleb Medley, gave birth Tuesday morning to a healthy baby boy.

The couple knew for weeks that Katie would be induced into labor today at Colorado University Hospital in Aurora.  They never imagined however that they would both be patients there.

Caleb Medley remains in critical condition after being shot in the eye during Friday's theater rampage. Katie managed to escape the same theater unharmed.

Hugo Jackson Medley was born at 7:11 Tuesday morning.  The most amazing part of the story may be the part when baby met dad for the first time.

Despite being in a medically induced coma, witnesses say Caleb had a definite physical reaction to having the baby placed in his arms.

According to a close family friend, Michael West, Caleb became slightly restless and showed a rise in pulse and blood pressure when his wife handed over their son.

West says. "You can tell [Caleb] wanted to be part of that moment".
