Chipotle actually organized the whole event as a surprise for the family, who thought they were just swinging by to "reunite" with Schell.
"We are always looking to make our customers happy by going above and beyond and cultivating a sense of community," Chipotle PR and Communications Manager Quinn Kelsey told Food & Wine. "We do that every day for our customers through the real and really delicious food we serve, but sometimes this goes beyond the restaurant itself -- literally! When we heard that baby Jaden was born in our parking lot, and the amazing teamwork between the family and the dispatcher, we were excited to do something special to celebrate them all. We loved throwing the Chipotle-themed baby shower and hope they enjoyed it just as much as we did."
It turns out that Jaden isn't actually the only person in his family with a special connection to the fast-casual Mexican chain. In fact, his parents, who have three other children, actually met at a Chipotle.
Kind of makes you wonder just what happy surprises are in store the next time they all stop by for some tacos.
