Proud parents Julianne Brown and Ken Fifield welcomed their new baby, Eleanor, at 12.02am on New Year’s Day.

Their baby girl had been due to arrive by C section on New Year’s Eve but after doctors at Kettering General Hospital persuaded the couple to opt for a natural birth, Eleanor waited until 2013 to arrive. She weighed 7lb and 9oz.

Julianne, 35, and Ken, 47, from Bozeat, said they were both delighted.
