Wisette said that she did have a c-section planned for today, but Veronica decided to arrive on her own a few hours early.
"We're very excited and happy she came a little earlier," she added.
Veronica is Wisette's first child, and Olson's second child. Olson also has a seven-year-old son, Zach.
Grandparents are Christine and Randy Backhaus and Jacqueline and Eric Wisette, all of Amberg.
