Suzanne Cooper's son was delivered at 6.59am and weighed 6lb 6oz (2.9kg) after being induced for six days. He was due on Saturday and husband Mike called the wait for his child 'a bit of a horror show'.
He had to persuade his wife, a 36-year-old special needs teacher, to agree to the name.
'The Omen is one of our favourite films and that's why I was keeping my legs crossed for a birth on the sixth,' she said. 'It does seem a bit weird I suppose – but he's perfect.' Damien was born at Southmead Hospital in Bristol.
