While most people were about to sit down to eat their Christmas meal Louise Barry was giving birth to a 9lb 14oz bundle of joy.

The 24-year-old mum, who celebrated her own birthday on Christmas Eve, delivered her son Jacob John Fryett at the West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, at 1.11pm on Christmas Day.

But the bouncing baby was 10 days overdue.

There to witness the special occasion was her husband Darren Fryett and Louise’s mother Sarah Willett.

It was the second child for the health care assistant who lives in Beck Row as the couple also have a daughter Imogen, who is two.
