The family says this is a very sweet moment for them as it's not only Merissa's first child, but the first grandchild for both sides of the family.

Merissa Kann/ New Mom: "They always say once you see your baby for the first time you fall in love and that sure is the case, and on Mother's Day it couldn't be more fitting."
