Just Born: David Beresford - Belfast Telegraph reader pictures
Michelle and Christopher Beresford, from Carryduff, are enjoying parenthood for the third time following the birth of their son David.
David Christopher Beresford was born at the Lagan Valley Hospital's midwife-led unit on September 6 at 7.30pm. He weighed 8lbS 1oz.
“He looks like his daddy,” Michelle said. “And he's happy as long as he's fed, like his Daddy, too.”
Michelle said she got “five-star” treatment during her time in hospital.
“Everything was lovely,” she added. “He was a water birth. I had a very peaceful delivery. Everything was done my way.”
Full-time mum Michelle (29) and Shorts procurement manager Christopher (29), originally from Wales and Newcastle-upon-Tyne respectively, are thrilled to be the proud parents of three healthy children. Michelle says the Beresford household is a very happy place to be. “It's hectic, but in a nice way.”
David's older siblings Jack (4) and Joy (3) are enjoying the new addition to the family.
“They are doting on him,” Michelle added. “Joy is a mini-mum and Jack wants to share his toys.”
Michelle's mother has just paid a visit to Northern Ireland from Wales to meet her new grandson. Michelle explained everyone has been very kind since the new arrival and she would like to say a special thank you to her midwife.
“Nicola Babes, our midwife, was brilliant,” she said.
