Victoria and Tom MacLynn from Holywood are loving every moment of parenthood following the birth of their first child.
The couple's daughter, Chloe Alexandra, was born by caesarean section at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald on September 4 at 3.41am.
When she arrived in the world, the beautiful little girl weighed 7lbs 7.5oz.
"When they handed her to me I was like, 'Wow, this is my little girl'," Victoria said. "Being a mum is so good – it's quite demanding, but very rewarding.
"Tom is going very well too. We're both still learning."
IT tutor Victoria (33) and Tom (35), a surveyor, said staff at the Ulster Hospital were very attentive and caring.
"Everyone was brilliant," Victoria said. "We couldn't fault them at all.
"They were so accommodating and helpful and attended to our every need."
The MacLynn house has been buzzing with visitors since Chloe's birth.
"We want to thank the MacLynn family for all their support and my family as well," Victoria said.
"It's been non-stop visitors, everyone has been so kind."
Victoria described her newborn daughter as a "lovely smiley baby" and said she and Tom are enjoying watching her thrive as each day passes.
"We have so much to look forward to," Victoria added.
"Watching her grow, going swimming and celebrating Christmas and birthdays will be lovely."
