Bombing survivor and fiancee welcome baby girl

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman and his fiancee welcomed their baby daughter into the world.

Bauman's publicist, Katlyn Townsend, tweeted Monday the couple welcomed daughter Nora Gail Bauman. She said everyone is healthy and happy.

The couple first announced they were expecting in an interview with Parade Magazine in March. The magazine published excerpts from Bauman's book, "Stronger," and also printed a first-hand reflection from his fiancee, Erin Hurley.

"Jeff and I have our own house now. We're engaged, and I'm pregnant, due this July," Hurley said in the article. "Nothing about this year was planned. Not much about the future is, either, but that's life, full of twists and turns."

The 28-year-old lost both of his legs in the blast, and he became a well-known face of the tragedy after a photo of him in a wheelchair and Carlos Arredondo at his side went viral.

The FBI has also credited Bauman with helping them identify one of the alleged bombers. After he woke up from surgery, he was able to give agents a description of Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
