DENVER -- One of the victims of Friday's Theater Shooting Massacre gave birth to a healthy baby boy Tuesday morning at University Hospital.

Hugo Jackson Medley was born around 7:11 a.m. His father, Caleb Medley, is still listed in critical condition. Doctors say it will be years before he makes a full recovery.

"We know Caleb is a fighter. We know he won't stay out of that child's life for too long," Caleb's youngest brother Seth Medley said.

Caleb Medley is an aspiring comedian. He had been working part time at a local Target. Unfortunately, he didn't have insurance. His family says medical bills will likely climb in to the millions.

Seth Medley says his brother is showing signs of improvement. Doctors told Caleb's family Caleb's blood pressure rose when he first saw his son.

"He moved his hand towards his baby trying to touch him, trying to feel him," Seth Medley said.

Katie Medley was not injured in the shooting, but many wondered how she would handle the situation with her husband while being pregnant.

Seth Medley says his sister-in-law is stressed but understands the situation.

An online petition has been created to help Caleb's family with the medical bills: http://www.calebmedley.com/
