TINY arrivals made Christmas and New Year extra special for two local families.
Selina Beckett, 31, of Park Estate, South Kirkby, gave birth to Calvin Carl Beckett, on New Year’s Day.
He was born at 3.06am at Pontefract Hospital and weighed six pounds and nine ounces.
Miss Beckett went into labour just as South Kirkby church chimed midnight.
She said: “As I got into my brother’s car to go to hospital all the fireworks started going off to celebrate the new year.
“It definitely took my mind off it for a few minutes.
“From then I knew I was going to have a New Year’s Day baby. We will never forget his birthday.”
Miss Beckett also has a 12-year-old daughter, Chloe, who was excited to meet her new baby brother.
There was also Christmas day baby joy for a family in Havercroft.
Logan-James Bryan was born at 6.36am on December 25, at Pinderfields Hospital, to proud parents Rebekah Price, 19, and Connor Bryan, 17.
He weighed eight pounds 12 ounces.
Miss Price, of South Street, said she was glad to be home after giving birth.
She said: “He’s doing fine.”
