Three Huntingdonshire families were given an extra special new year present with the delivery of their babies.
Jessica is the couple’s first child and the pair were over the moon to be able to give Sarah’s parents their first grandchild, who weighed 6lb 14oz.
“I had been induced a few days earlier but obviously it took a little while, we wasn’t expecting her on New Years Day,” said Sarah, “it was a good way to start 2016, we are so happy as it is our first baby.”
The St Ives pair chose Jessica because it was a name that they had both liked for sometime and came to the decision that Beatrice would be her middle name after it was considered classic.
Ben and Nicola Fox were shocked when they found out that they would be welcoming their first child 10 days earlier than they expected to.
The Sawtry couple thought that they were going to have their baby on January 11 but after being induced days before Nicola underwent an emergency caesarean.
Sarah said: “It was a bit unexpected – we didn’t think that the he would come that early.”
