Margaret “Maggie” Webber delivered her son, Hudson Brian Webber Jr., on May 13 at Texas Children’s Hospital.

“I love the timing, I wouldn’t have changed a thing,” Webber told the Houston Chronicle. “My husband was absolutely there to support me and cheer on.”

Webber’s water broke in the early morning hours of her graduation day, but she says she was OK with celebrating her achievement from the hospital room.

She added that she carried a lighter load later in her pregnancy, thanks to taking harder classes earlier in her law school education.
