Family welcomes a new year baby

A PORTISHEAD family welcomed the new year in at St Michael’s hospital in Bristol as they awaited the imminent arrival of a new son.

The second son to Holly and Matt Gaunt, both aged 28 of Lambourne Way, Sam eventually weighed in at 7lb 3oz at 6.02pm on January 1.

Holly’s mum Barbara Thatcher said: “Holly says she is feeling fine after an easy birth and Sam is feeding well.”

Within hours Sam had been acquainted with his older brother, two-year-old James, who says he cannot wait for his little brother to be able to kick a football around with him.
