Just born: Chloe Louise Watson
Chloe Louise Watson arrived in the world at 11.36am on June 7, 2011, weighing a healthy 7lbs 12oz.
The cute baby girl was a very welcome delivery for her courier dad Ian Watson (38), from Ballynahinch, and his wife Judith (34), an auxiliary nurse.
Proud mum Judith said she adores the new addition to the Watson family and was beaming with pride as she cradled her beautiful second daughter.
She also said her experience of the Ulster Hospital had been “fantastic” and there was nowhere else she would have wanted to have her elected C-section.
“I work here in the Ulster Hospital, in the renal unit,” she said. “So I know everyone’s face. The staff have been fantastic. They have all been very good to me.”
Little Chloe was born with a full head of shiny dark hair.
“We were both dark at birth, but both went sandy, so her hair could be either of us,” Judith said. “I adore her. She really looks like her daddy. She’s a ringer for him.”
Judith said the couple’s first child, Rebekah (3), is looking forward to having a little sister she can teach things to and play games with.
As the Watsons already have a young daughter, they will also see the financial benefit of having two girls relatively close in age.
“She’s a cheap baby. I’ve got all the clothes from Rebekah,” Judith joked. “She’s an easy-going wee lady so far. Very chilled out.”
Dad Ian will just have to accept that it’s his lot in life to be surrounded by fabulous women. He now has three Watson ladies to contend with.
Tired but happy mum Judith told the Belfast Telegraph the couple feel lucky to have two perfect daughters, but they don’t have plans for more children. “No. That’s it. See how quickly I answered that?”
Judith said her second childbirth experience was a lot calmer than the first time around. “Last time, it was an emergency. But this time everything was so straightforward.
“The whole family are pleased. Everyone is so happy it is another girl.”
