Walmart throws surprise baby shower for homeless baby born in wake of hurricane

The family of a baby who spent his first night out of the hospital in a Walmart parking lot after Hurricane Michael just got a surprise baby shower.

The happy event happened at a Walmart near the store where the family hunkered down in those dark days following the Category 4 storm.

Wilmer Capps, his wife Lorrainda Smith and their baby Luke were surprised on Tuesday after they were told to show up at the Walmart for a hurricane recovery meeting.

The family's home was damaged during the storm, so the baby shower was the best news they've had in a while: They got a year's supply of diapers, a food voucher and a cake with rubber duckies on it saying "Walmart loves Luke."
