She kept her parents waiting, but now she has a birthday with a ready-made cause for celebration – New Year’s Day.
Little Willow Maynard weighed in at a healthy 7lbs and 14 oz at 10.36am on January 1, having been born at West Suffolk Hospital. Mum Helen, of Queens Road, Sudbury, said her second daughter had been due two days before Christmas.
“At least she will have a birthday to remember in the future,” said the 26-year-old former care worker.
Dad Simon, who works for taxi firm Femme Cars in Great Cornard, is equally proud of his new year’s blessing.
“He is over the moon he has two little girls,” added Helen, who also has a two-year-old daughter, Summer.
