Just Born: Parents are relishing life with new arrival Dylan Curtis Browne
Gemma Dodds and Robert Browne from Bangor are celebrating the birth of a son.
Dylan Curtis Browne weighed 9lbs when he was born at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald on June 16 at 2.27pm.
He is named after Gemma's eldest nephew.
The healthy baby boy is a first child for his mother and the second child for his father.
Full time mum Gemma (29) and Robert (25), a factory worker, are enjoying the challenges of parenthood and watching Dylan change with every day.
Gemma recalled the moment he was born.
"He went to his daddy first because I had a caesarean," Gemma said.
"I couldn't wait to hold him.
"I am so excited to be a mummy and show him off."
The couple knew in advance they were going to be welcoming a son into the world.
"I found out at 18 weeks I was having a boy," Gemma said.
"He is the spitting image of my brother, his uncle.
"He is a great wee baby."
Gemma praised the staff at the Ulster for the care they provided.
"Everyone was brilliant," she said.
Gemma and Robert's friends and family have been helping the couple celebrate the new addition to the family.
"Everyone has been up to see us," Gemma said.
"Thanks for all the well wishes, lovely messages, visitors and presents."
