The two baby girls were both four days late, arriving on 25 December instead of their due date of 21 December.

Lottie May Leatt was born at 9.47 am, having held out to become the first Christmas Day baby of 2005.

‘We knew it was going to be a Christmas baby, so you might as well make it Christmas Day,’ her mother Sarah said this morning.

Lottie weighed in at 8 lb 1 oz and she and her mother are now back at home in St Brelade with Lottie’s father, Gary, and sister, Maggie, who will be four next week.

‘I think Maggie was very pleased to have a sister,’ Mrs Leatt said.

‘It was the best Christmas present.’ Rebecca Belhomme tucked into a Christmas Day dinner consisting of a piece of toast this year, following the birth of her first child, Lucy Louise, at lunchtime.

Mrs Belhomme, her husband Paul and his son Brandon (8), had planned to have their family around for dinner this Christmas, but instead are planning to do Christmas a little late.

‘My mum was going to come here and cook and we were all going to swap presents, but instead, we are going to do Christmas on New Year’s Day,’ Mrs Belhomme said this morning.

Lucy was born at 1.56 pm and weighed 7 lb 1 oz, and Mrs Belhomme said they were looking forward to the new year with their daughter.

Both mothers thanked all the staff at the maternity department of the General Hospital, who they said had been fantastic.
