THIS little bundle of joy was the first baby to be born in Huddersfield in 2011.
Mum Julia Larum and dad Martin Hall, from Cowlersley, told the Examiner they are “over the moon” with their new baby girl.
Thirty-seven-year-old Julia said she and her partner had not yet thought of a name for the 7lb 10oz baby.
The mum, who also has a 16-year-old son called Aaron Iveson from a previous relationship, said: “I had a feeling she was going to be born on New Year.
“My son Aaron was three days over-due and they say the second one usually follows suit.
“I’m quite happy really because she was born on 1.1.’11 which is quite special.”
Julia and Martin went to a friend’s house to celebrate the New Year and went to bed at about 3am.
Julia, who works as a nurse, said: “At the party I had a bit of a tummy ache but I thought nothing of it – I thought maybe I’d just had a few dodgy samosas.
“I was at home in bed and I just thought I’ve got a little bit of a twinge.
“At about 4.30am I thought this is a little bit more than a twinge.
“There wasn’t really any build-up and we only just made it to the hospital in time for the birth.
“Martin drove me to the hospital – he was very calm.”
The dark-haired baby girl was born at Huddersfield Family Birth Centre in the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary at 6.55am after just 20 minutes in labour.
Julia said: “Martin and Aaron are both over the moon. It’s Martin’s first baby so he’s made up.
“I’m just going to go home and relax and put my feet up,” she added.
