First-time parents from Burnley celebrated the New Year by welcoming their very own bundle of joy.
Becca Taylor (20) gave birth to baby boy Corben at 3-25pm on New Year’s Day. The tot, who was due to be born on January 6th, weighed 6lb. 11oz.
He is the first child of Becca and her partner Carl Riding (26), of Grassington Drive, Harle Syke, and was born at Burnley General Hospital’s Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre.
Delighted dad Carl, who works in finance, said: “I am so so proud. I’m proud of my son and I’m proud of Becca as well. She was amazing.”
And he added fatherhood would take some getting used to.
“It’s just crazy at the moment. There’s baby stuff all over the house. But it’s very exciting.”
