Dic Donohue, who was injured during the hunt for the Boston Marathon bombers in 2013, welcomed a new member of his family on Friday.
Donohue tweeted a photo the couple’s new baby boy, Connor Donohue, who was born Friday at Mt. Auburn Hospital.
Donohue was obviously emotional about the news, which he says comes exactly 3 years after his wife, Kim, watched him wake up from a coma.

Donohue, who recently retired from the MBTA Transit Police, was shot in the leg during the shootout and on Tuesday reflected on the amount of support he has received.
"Just an overwhelming support from so many people, even starting with the people on scene in Watertown, the police officers and firefighters that got me to the hospital and saved my life," he said. "The hospital staff there and everybody that helped bring me back to life, and then has supported me every single step of the way, whether it be in the hospital or the three years afterwards. It’s been an incredibly feeling and such a strong show of support from something that could have been so terrible."
