Just Born: Wee Poppy a perfect picture for arty mum
Kerry and Darren Miles from Lisburn are celebrating the birth of their first child together.
Kerry (40) and Darren (33) welcomed Poppy Isabelle Miles into the world on August 13 at 11.15am.
The beautiful baby girl weighed 5lbs 11oz and measured 48cms.
"She's just gorgeous," Kerry said.
"I was so amazed to see her. She's beautiful."
Kerry's 14-year-old son Harry is enjoying being a big brother.
"He absolutely adores her," Kerry said.
"He thinks she is the most beautiful thing in the world."
First-time dad Darren is in his element.
"He's a doting father," Kerry said.
"He loves being a dad."
Kerry, who suffered placenta problems, praised the staff at the Ulster Hospital for the care they provided.
"I was in hospital for five weeks and they were outstanding the whole time," Kerry said.
"I am an artist so I worked on three canvases when I was there.
"They were very accommodating, going above and beyond the call of duty, so I'm donating a painting to leave them with something.
"They have touched our hearts.
"It was total professional care with a personal touch."
