Stephanie Bennett and partner Jonathan Cox welcomed their baby boy, who has yet to be named, at St Richard’s Hospital at 3.30pm.

Dr Bennett said she had her Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve so as not to miss out on the celebrations before going into labour on Christmas morning.

Her baby boy has an older brother, Xavier, aged three.
