Little Scott weighed in at a healthy eight and half pounds and was born in the new South West Acute hospital near Enniskillen at 2.50pm.
He was born as victims' relatives, First Minister Peter Robinson and NI Secretary of State Theresa Villiers took part in a memorial service at the Co Fermanagh town's cenotaph to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the bombing.
On Remembrance Sunday, 8 November 1987 at 10.43am, the IRA attacked the War Memorial in the town, killing 11 people, and injuring over 60 others.
A minute's silence was observed 25 years later at the exact moment of the blast by those in attendance.
Also at the memorial was Keith Gault, son of RUC Sergeant Samuel Gault, who died in the attack.
He had been waiting to hear of the birth as his grandson Scott was actually four days overdue.
"He sort of held on I think, for that day," Keith said.
"It brings a bit of joy into the heartache of the day, a bit of light from the darkness."
"There's a reason for everything, I think."
He says that the family, mum Katie, dad Andrew and baby Scott are all doing well.
