Flemish term or phrase: Vandaag heeft de hemel de aarde geraakt. Jij bent geboren!
A friend had a baby and this came from the announcement we assume is in Flemish.

English translation:Heaven touched the earth today. You are born!
Explanation:
Like in the Christmas carol "Embrace the Night":

Embrace this night in Bethlehem,
A night like none before,
For Heaven touched the earth tonight
Through the Christ Child Mary bore.

The Prince of Peace is born tonight
In a stable far away
As shepherds come to see the sight
And Wise Men come to pray.
.....

O miracle of love divine
When heaven touched the earth,
Its glory shining far and wide
At Christ the Saviour's birth.

The shepherds and the wise men
Set out for Bethlehem
To worship Christ, the new-born King,
Who came from heaven's realm.

Gladness on earth, in heaven above:
At last the Saviour's come:
A gift of God the Father's love,
The sole-begotten Son.
