The internet is buzzing over a baby who was born too early onboard Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas earlier in September.

The baby namedĀ Haiden Morgan has become know as the “miracle baby”. To the surprise of medical staff onboard and even the baby boy’s parents he arrived early! Chase and Emily Morgan along with their 3-year-old daughter were on a 7-day Caribbean cruise on the large Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

Even though the couple from Utah were cleared to cruise by doctors it was justĀ the second night and little Haiden began to let them know he was ready! With labor pains in full motion the onboard doctor was called and even though the large vessel was hours away from port Emily Morgan had no choice but to give birth.

In the early hours of the morning the baby was born but it was first believed that he did not survive. Hours later to the surprise of medical staff the baby was indeed still alive and with the captain sailing at full speed towards Puerto Rico everything looked on the up. Until their early arrival into San Juan the next day the baby was well cared for by the parents and the ship’s medical staff.

Emily Morgan told KSL:

“His feet are 2 inches long and his hands are about an inch and a half,” Emily said. “His body length is about 13 inches, so he’s very, very small.” Haiden weighed one pound, eight ounces at birth.

After spending three days in Hospital in Puerto Rico the couple and their new son managed to get transferred to a Hospital in Miami where Haiden could receive further care. They are planning on moving to a Hospital closer to home in Utah until December.

This is such a great success story and Cruise Hive wishes the new family all the best for the future. We wonder if they will be cruising onboard Independence of the Seas again!
