The birth of a baby boy to Tori and Jonny Shaw

Tori and Jonny Shaw, from Castlereagh, are celebrating the birth of their first child.

The couple's baby son, Oscar, weighed 7lb 8.5oz and measured 52cms when he was born at the Ulster Hospital, Dundonald, on April 25 at 3.35pm.

"Everyone told me first babies are always late, but Oscar arrived two weeks early," Tori said. "He was in a hurry to get here.

"He looks very like his dad and he's just started smiling this week. He's a great baby; he's feeding and sleeping like a wee trouper."

Tori praised the staff at the Ulster for the care her young family received.

"Everyone was great," Tori added. "The midwives were fantastic; they looked after us really well.

"It's an absolutely overwhelming experience. When they handed Oscar to me and I knew he was alright, it was the most amazing feeling."

The Shaws' son is a first grandchild for both sides of the family, so he is getting lots of attention from everyone.

"He's going to be very spoiled," Tori said. "We have been inundated with visitors, cards and flowers. Everyone has been so lovely to us and we are loving being parents.

"He is such a good baby, it is easy to enjoy it.

"We've found it to be wonderful and it helps now with the good weather we can get out with the pram.

"It's a nice time to have a baby."
