A WHITBY couple got an extra special present this year when their baby couldn’t wait for his first Christmas.
Logan-Jay Hunter became the first baby to be born on Christmas Day making his entry into the world right on the stroke of midnight.
He wasn’t due until Wednesday of this week but surprised parents Anth Hunter and Kirsty Nicholson - a young farmer from Briscoe Farm in Hutton Mulgrave.
They had gone to Whitby Hospital to get checked over on the afternoon of Christmas Eve but were sent straight over to Scarborough Hospital where he weighed in at 5lb and 15 ounces.
By 6am on Christmas morning the couple were back at Anth’s parents home in Dundas Gardens to celebrate with their families and tuck into their Christmas dinner.
Proud dad Anth (26) said: “We still got our Christmas dinner together so that was an extra bonus but it was a lovely Christmas present.
“We weren’t expecting him to come this early and we have had to get tiny baby clothes because newborns are too big for him but for a small baby he can make a lot of noise and is keeping us up.”
Logan-Jay’s arrival was also a welcome Christmas present for proud grandparents, Michael and Angie Hunter and Eddie and Carol Nicholson.
Michael added: “It is absolutely smashing - you can’t get a better Christmas present.”
