Little Demi Somerville became Northern Ireland’s first baby of the new year, coming into the world only moments after the clock struck midnight.

The Bangor baby was one of several bundles of joy born yesterday as revellers across the province celebrated into the small hours.

While thousands were out in force clinking glasses in celebration of 2013, baby Demi was born at 12.03am at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald.

Proud mum Cheryl said the tot weighed in at 7lbs 2oz.

Also born on the first day of 2013 was Sophia Gratton.

She, too, came onto the world at the Ulster Hospital at 3.40am on New Year’s Day, weighing 9lbs 9oz, a new baby daughter for parents Carrie and William from Whitehead.

And at Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital, little Ronan Barr emerged into the world.

He weighed a healthy 9lbs on arrival at 6.13am.
