THE best Christmas present was received by a Bridlington family who welcomed a new member on Christmas Day.
Betsy Anne Jones was born at Scarborough Hospital to mother Carly Rowley, 29, of Easby Close, Bridlington.
After arriving at hospital by ambulance at 6.55am, Miss Rowley gave birth at 10.09am to Betsy, who weighed 8lbs and 15oz. She is the baby sister to big brother Decan, 10.
Miss Rowley, who is engaged to partner David Jones, said: “We are very pleased, very happy. She was eight days late and we kind of thought it might happen on Christmas Day.
“Everyone kept saying it, and then I woke up at 2am in labour.
“It is an extra special present. Decan said that she is his best present.”
Grandmother Barbara Rowley said: “She is beautiful, it has made the family. Decan had to wait all day to open his presents and he was so patient. He absolutely loves her, he dotes on her.
“It is a fantastic Christmas present – Christmas comes a poor second compared to that.”
