Proud father Nathan Ellington dedicated his first Premiership goals to his new son Nathal and said his second strike would find its way on to his collection of home videos.
The 24-year-old's first child was born on November 4 and Ellington celebrated only his second Premiership start with a brace of goals, including a coolly-taken penalty, that helped Albion procure their biggest Premiership victory.
Ellington's second goal was taken with real authority and his 'cradle-rocking' celebration ensured it was a day to remember for Albion's £3 million summer signing.

"It is great to get my first Premiership goals. I got my chance to celebrate in this game by scoring and I did," a visibly delighted Ellington said.
"The penalty was just how I normally take them. I just walk up to it and score really. I'm not going to say how I score but that's the way I take my penalties.
"I've just gone for goal and I've been taken down. I didn't know where I was (Ellington appeared to fouled outside the penalty area).
"The referee pointed to the spot and I thought I might as well take the penalty.
"My second goal was one of the better ones, but I score quite a few goals like that. I always watch my tapes of all my goals and I've always scored loads of good goals from far out. It is up there with the best.
"Watching videos of my goals gives me confidence, so I like to watch what I can do before a game and stuff like that.
"My friends always like to watch it as well so I've got a little collection of my goals, Jason Roberts' goals, Bobby Zamora's goals and people like that.
"Every now and then I put the tape on and watch a few goals. I watch other people too. I've got tapes of Ronaldo, Alesandro Del Pierro and people like that.
"I take from everyone really to try and improve my own game. I don't try and base myself on any one person."
Ellington, who has scored four goals in three first-team starts for Albion following his two-goal Carling Cup haul against Bradford in September, is keen to cement a regular starting place.
His Albion career has yet to fully ignite after a series of niggling injuries and paternity leave has hampered his entrance into the Premiership.
Nevertheless, the positive effect of fatherhood has agreed with Ellington and his partnership with Kanu looked potentially explosive.
"Kanu always picks you out from anywhere so it's great to play alongside him," Ellington said. "In terms of quality, he is the best I have played alongside.
"It's been a bit frustrating to have made only two starts but a good learning curve as well. When you are on the sidelines you can see what is going on and take it all in and, when you get the chance, prove yourself. That's what I have done now.
"It would be nice to have a run in the team now. Every player wants to get a run and I'm no different. I've played and scored two and I'd like to stay in the side.
"I could have had a hattrick. I had a chance in the first half when I turned and didn't really hit it too well and I sliced one over the bar in the second half but it was a good day."
