Baby girl delight for SDLP MLA Nichola Mallon

By Staff Reporter

SDLP MLA Nichola Mallon has given birth to a baby girl at the Mater Hospital in Belfast.

Taking to Twitter to thank hospital staff and well-wishers on the arrival of her second child she said: "A huge thank you to the staff at the maternity unit in the Mater Hospital for helping me to deliver a perfect baby girl in the early hours this morning.

"That's three to one in our house. The hubby hasn't a chance against us girls."

Mrs Mallon has decided not to stand in the Westminster election for the North Belfast seat, allowing Martin McAuley, a 26-year-old law graduate, to go head to head with DUP MP Nigel Dodds and Sinn Fein's John Finucane.
