Just Born: Lainey May Alexi Scott - bonnie wee Scott is double of daddy

Michele Shields and Jim Scott from east Belfast have welcomed a daughter into the world.

Lainey May Alexi Scott weighed 10lbs and measured 50cms when she was born at the Ulster Hospital by Caesarean section on August 12 at 10.36pm.

Medical receptionist Michele (35) and Jim (29), a scaffolder, couldn't believe their eyes when their beautiful baby daughter appeared.

"She didn't look like a newborn," Michele said.

"We were over the moon to see her, just delighted. She's the double of her daddy, not one bit of me.

"She is going brilliantly. She's thriving.

"She is a great wee eater and sleeper. We can't complain about her at all."

The couple's other two children – Kristen (14) and Tyler (9) – are enjoying the new addition to the family and doing their bit to help take care of her.

"They are over the moon with her, totally fascinated by her," Michelle said.

"They are both great with her."

Michele praised the staff at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald for the care they provided

She also explained that since Lainey's arrival home, the house has been busy with friends and family keen to meet her new daughter.

"We've been inundated with visitors to have a wee nurse," Michele said.
