Just born: We love our wee Kallan and his button nose

Lauren Donaghy and Grant Graham from south Belfast are celebrating the birth of their first child together.

Kallan Patrick Donaghy weighed 7lb 9oz when he was born at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald on November 5 at 5am.

HR officer Lauren (29) and Grant (41), a manufacturing manager, both work for Randox Laboratories.

Lauren is a first-time parent and Grant has four other children.

The couple found out in advance they were expecting a son and are besotted.

"From day one he has been an absolute dote," Lauren said.

"I know I am biased but he is perfect.

"He has a wee button nose and he takes after me and his dad's swarthy skin.

"We are both just in love."

Lauren praised the "fantastic" staff at the Ulster Hospital for the care they provided for her and Kallan.

"Mary Lou the midwife was with me throughout," she said.

"All the staff were really reassuring with me being a first time mum.

"They were all brilliant."

Friends and family have been visiting baby Kallan who is thriving. Lauren and Grant would like to thank their loved ones for all their support.

"Everyone has been great," Lauren said.

"They have all been loving him. He loves being in someone's arms.

"Or if he is lying on someone's chest he is as happy as Larry."
