Emma and David Gowdy from Ballywalter are celebrating the birth of a son.
When Adam Lewis Campbell Gowdy was born at the Ulster Hospital on May 21 at 1.59am, he weighed 8lbs 10oz and measured 56cms.
Adam's middles names come from his mother's side of the family.
Campbell is Emma's maiden name and Lewis is her great grandmother's maiden name.
"We are really happy," Emma said.
"He was a surprise. He is amazing. He looks like his brother Logan."
Emma chose to return to the Ulster to deliver Adam as she had also given birth to her first son Logan there.
She praised the care provided to her young family
"They were very good," Emma said. "Fantastic. I had Logan there as well."
Adam is thriving and big brother Logan (3) is enjoying having a playmate around the house.
"He's a very proud big brother," Emma added.
Motherhood is a little easier the second time round.
"I am loving it," Emma said.
"My husband is a hands on dad too.
"It is definitely easier the second time round. You are not so worried as you are with your first".
Emma and David would like to extend their thanks to friends and family for all their kind messages, presents and congratulations.
"We have had great support," Emma said.
