ALAN and Esther Marsh from Bangor have welcomed a son into the world. Little Isaac James Marsh weighed 7lb 11oz and measured 50cm when he was born at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald on February 2 at 11.49pm.
Esther (26), a nursery nurse, and Alan (26), a ministry student, are overjoyed their baby son is healthy, happy and thriving.
“We were thrilled to meet our son after nine months of waiting patiently for him to arrive,” Esther said.
“We both feel very blessed to have him in our lives.”
The new mum praised the staff at the Ulster Hospital for the excellent standard of care they provided her young family.
“Everyone was lovely in the Ulster Maternity Unit especially an auxiliary nurse call Mel,” Esther said.
“She was a great support to us in hospital.”
The couple explained their very special reason for naming their new son Isaac.
“Isaac is a Hebrew name meaning ‘he laughs',” Esther said.
“We hope that he will bring much laughter into our lives in the future.”
The new addition to the family is doing well and looks very much like his proud father.
“Isaac looks like his daddy except without the beard!” Esther added.
