The couple said they did not know the sex of the baby beforehand hand so it was a complete surprise when she arrived.

“I was really hoping for a girl because we already have two boys and I felt a girl would give some balance in the family,” said Mr Trott. Ms DeSilva said she was happy to be through the six hours of labour and was quite surprised that Drue arrived on her Christmas Day due date. “It’s interesting that she was born at 12:25 on 12/25,” Ms DeSilva said.

Drue weighed 6lbs 14oz.
