Worcestershire families celebrate Christmas Day babies
11:20am Friday 27th December 2013 in News
SEVEN Worcestershire families got an extra-special Christmas present this year as they welcomed new additions to their families.
Four girls and three boys were born at Worcestershire Royal Hospital between 5.49am and 9.32pm on Christmas Day, keeping midwives on their toes throughout the day Mohammed Nazeed Chaudhary was one of the first to arrive, at 7.15am, to Nasreen Kousar and husband Mohammed, weighing in at five pounds and five ounces.
Mrs Kousar, of Birchfield Close, Worcester, said both she and baby Mohammed – little brother to Aseeb Ali, aged 19 and Akeeb Ali, 17 – were doing well.
“He’s been doing very well so far,” she said.
Just an hour later, Marie and Gary Williams, from Bromsgrove, welcomed baby Krissie, who arrived at 8.45am, weighing six pounds and 9.5 ounces.
Mrs Williams said it had been a surprise – but a welcome one – to welcome their new daughter on Wednesday, as she had not been due until January 15.
She added they had decided on the name far in advance but were expecting to field endless questions on whether they had decided on the name in honour of her birthday.
“If she was a boy we were going to call her Christopher after my dad,” she said.
Mr Williams described it as “the best Christmas present ever” and said he had joked they should give her the middle name ‘massday’.
Mrs Williams added their older daughter, six-year-old Chelsie , was excited to meet her baby sister.
“She’s been crying all day because she had to stay at home,” she said.
“The midwives here have been fantastic – they gave her a little Christmas hat and outfit.
“She’s been golden so far.”
She added both she and baby Krissie were doing well and looking forward to going home on Boxing Day.
