Baby news: Delighted Belfast councillor Julie-Anne gives birth to twins

Belfast councillor Julie-Anne Corr-Johnston has given birth to twins.

The PUP representative (29) and her partner Kerry (28) took to Facebook on Friday to share the news.

The North Belfast councillor posted a photo of the new born boy and girl along with the caption: "Alexander and Martha Johnston born on the 21st September. My heart is bursting."

The couple celebrate the arrivals following artificial insemination.

On Monday Mrs Corr-Johnston wrote on Facebook that all being well, they were getting set to meet their "little munchkins" on Wednesday and that "in preparation I plan to throw the feet up today and tomorrow and will be out of action for a short while until we get them home and settled."

Mrs Corr-Johnston (29) was Northern Ireland's first openly lesbian loyalist politician.

In November 2014 she was walked down the aisle by her mother when she entered into a civil partnership with Kerry Johnston.
