Boston Marathon double-amputee becomes a dad

Posted: Updated:

It's been a good few days for Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Sunday, Bauman and his fiancee Erin became parents of a baby girl, Nora Gail Bauman. Jeff Bauman posted a picture on his Facebook page, saying, "Everyone's healthy and happy."

The very next day, Jeff Bauman learned that Lionsgate Films wanted to make a movie from his best-selling book Stronger. The books describes Jeff Bauman's journey from the bombings to learning to walk on prosthetic legs.

The movie will be produced by the same team that made Eminem's 8 Mile biopic.
