Amy gave birth to their first child ” and Joondalup Health Campus’ first public ward Australia Day arrival ” at 2.15am after a ‘very quick labour’.

Lucas Chase weighed in at 3.88kg a week before his February 1 due date.

Soon after, Polish-born Maciej made his way to Wanneroo Showground to become one of the City of Wanneroo’s 751 new Australian citizens.

‘It’s crazy that our son was born and Maciej became an Australian citizen all on the same day,’ Australian-born Amy said.

‘It was a bit surreal and weird how it all worked out. Lucas will have fireworks every year for his birthday.’

Maciej has lived in Perth for five years.
