Three babies born on Christmas Day

Sunday 25 December 2022: There were no babies due to be born on Christmas Day this year, but three special Christmas bundles of joy had arrived by the afternoon.

Troyleta Franklin and Bilal Binns were not expecting a Christmas arrival for their baby. Everything was in place for Christmas day and Santa had delivered all his gifts ready for their children, but a new baby brother decided to join his siblings Jayden Binns and Ari Cannionier early on Christmas morning. Lucki was born at 4:26am at 7lbs and 9.1oz.

“All the presents were ready for our Christmas morning,” Ms Franklin said. “It was so unexpected.”

Daryl Dill and Staphen Dill were enjoying Christmas morning with daughter, Aren Dill who is five.

“We had finished opening gifts on Christmas morning, but then there were clear signs I had to get to hospital,” explained Mrs Dill. “We thought we were going to have a regular Christmas as the baby was due on 2 January.”

Instead, Justice Rose Dill was born at 9:32am at 6lb and 12oz.

“Her middle name was given by her sister,” said Mrs Dill. “Aren has been calling her little sister ‘Rosie’ for many months.”

A third baby was born in the afternoon. Rebecca Ezekiel and George Scott welcomed a son on Christmas Day at 3:17pm, weighing 7lbs.

Maternity nurses decorated the baby cribs so that every baby born on Christmas Day felt celebrated.
