SPECIAL PRESENT: Proud mum Charley McAdam, of Salterbeck, Workington, is all smiles after getting over the shock after her son Jake made a surprise entrance to the world on Christmas Day

Charley McAdam, 22, and Gavin Bilton, 23, of Roper Terrace, were looking forward to a January baby but Jake, weighing in at 6lb 11ozs, had other ideas.

Charley said she woke up at 2.30am on Christmas morning in some discomfort and baby Jake was born just over 12 hours later at the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven at 3.37pm.

“I missed out on my Christmas dinner – but it was worth it,” the proud mum said yesterday.

“Gavin didn’t miss out though. The staff served him a full Christmas dinner while I was in labour!”

Jake was the second baby born at the hospital on Christmas day.

The first, delivered by Caesarian section at 12.12am, was Logan Ray, the first child of Amy Drummond and Jonathon Bridson of Cleator Moor.
