Three New Year’s Day babies have been born at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
“Two on dry land and one in water” remarked the midwives, referring the first arrival at the Paget’s Dolphin Suite’s birthing pool at 1.44am.
Among the first of the 2014 arrivals was Timor’ Rio Zion Seixas, born at 6.45am at 6lbs and 3oz.
“I am very happy,” said proud dad Oldegar Seixas.
Timor’ Rio was due on January 4.
Mum Donita De Caries hadn’t wanted a New Year’s Day arrival, but when she woke early yesterday with labour pains knew she had to get from the family home in Great Yarmouth to hospital as quickly as possible - if only to avoid a repeat of last time when she gave birth in a car on the way to hospital.
“We’d stayed up until midnight, but just at home as it was so close to the due date,” said Ms De Caries, 33.
“I woke up about 5am in pain and my waters broke so we phoned the ambulance. We made it to the hospital just on time - it was very quick, but so were my other three.”
So quick, in fact, that Ms de Caries gave birth to Timor’ Rio’s older brother, Raine, in the car on route to the Paget.
“I wasn’t going to let that happen again,” she said.
As well as being a new baby brother to Raine, now three, Timor’ Rio will be much loved by older siblings Skye, nine, and Storm, 11.
“They are looking forward to meeting him,” said Ms De Caries.
“We’ve sent them some pictures,” said Mr Seixas.
The third baby born at the Paget on New Year’s Day was a boy at 2.52am.
