Colum Eastwood welcomes new baby with a Tweet: 'Did I miss anything today?'

SDLP leader Colum Eastwood, MLA, and his wife Rachael had more excitement to contend with on Thursday than the goings on at Stormont.

They are the proud parents of a new baby daughter.

The former Mayor of Londonderry announced the birth via Twitter, saying: “Delighted to announce the birth of our beautiful baby girl, Maya Olive Eastwood."

Both mother and baby are "doing great", he added.

Then he finished with a question: "Did I miss anything today?”

The deadline to restore powersharing Northern Ireland passed at 4pm on Thursday with no significant progress.

The parties have now been given until Monday to arrive at consensus.
