WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Will and Amy Edwards welcomed their first child into the world at New Hanover Regional Medical Center this weekend but because of restrictions in place due to COVID-19, they had to improvise to introduce their bundle of joy to their loved ones.

The couple held little Liam Knox Edwards up to the window from their room inside NHRMC. Outside, their family got their first glimpse at little Liam from the parking lot.
