Special birthday for Workington baby Olivia

A Workington woman got more than she bargained for as the new year dawned.

NEW YEAR, NEW BABY: Emma Lister and Stephen Jenkinson, of Cusack Crescent, Workington, with baby Olivia

Emma Lister, 28, of Cusack Crescent, started having labour contractions as the clocks chimed midnight to herald the new year.

Emma gave birth to Olivia Jenkinson at 7pm on January 1 after a 19-hour labour.

She and partner Stephen Jenkinson, 34, a charge hand at Tata Steel, Workington, were delighted by the early arrival of the 8lb 1oz baby, whose due date was today.

Emma, who also has a son, Billy Joe, seven, said: “Me and Stephen have been together three years and both wanted a child together.

“We didn’t know what the baby was before she was born so it was a lovely surprise.

“It was a long labour but everything went smoothly and naturally.

“Stephen’s grandma is called Olive which is what inspired the name Olivia.

“The family is absolutely over the moon and it’s a great start to the new year for us.”
