ROYAL CONNECTION: KellyAnn and Craig Holdsworth, with two-year-old Jack and baby Sienna, who was born on her dad’s birthday – the same day that Prince George arrived

Sienna Holdsworth was born at 9.12pm on July 22 in Whitehaven’s West Cumberland Hospital, just hours after His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge entered the world.

Craig Holdsworth, of Ashton Street, was celebrating his 33rd birthday when his second child was born.

He said: “You can’t get a better present than having your daughter born on your birthday.”

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to the third in line to the throne after a 12-hour delivery but mum KellyAnn, 33, gave birth to Sienna four hours after she went into labour.

She said: “I was 10 days overdue. She should have been born before but people said to me that she was waiting for the royal baby.”

Sienna weighed 7lb 11oz, and her birth has been warmly welcomed by her two-year-old brother Jack.

Mrs Holdsworth will receive a commemorative Royal Mint silver coin along with all mothers who gave birth on the same day as the duchess.
