Jeenat Khan and Nashid Alam, from east Belfast via Bangladesh, are now the proud parents of a baby son.
Jeenat (31), a doctor at the Ulster Hospital, Dundonald, said that there was never any doubt as to where she would be having her second child.
The little boy was born at the Ulster on June 19 at 10am, weighing 6lb 2oz.
Nashid (31), a doctor at Antrim Area Hospital, explained they haven't decided on a name for their first son yet, but will definitely be following tradition and calling him something beginning with the letter ‘N’.
The couple’s daughter Nowshaba (4) is very excited about the new arrival and was in tears when she had to leave her new baby brother at the hospital to go home for the night.
“She's delighted to have a brother,” Jeenat said. “I am feeling really good. He is beautiful.
“It's slightly easier the second time around and the staff were very attentive. I couldn't have asked for better.”
Nashid was beaming from ear to ear when the Belfast Telegraph visited the Alam family at the Ulster Hospital.
“He's gorgeous,” Nashid said. “I still can't believe I have a son.
“We want to thank our colleagues, friends and family for all their messages of support.
“We are so happy with our blessing,” he added.
