This has just come out from our Media Department at my Campaign HQ and is the proudest entry on my blog:
Antony Little, the Conservative’s local candidate for Norwich South at the next general election, has become a father for the first time. Baby Emily Rose was born 12 days late at the Norwich & Norfolk after a labour lasting around 45 hours. Weighing in at 7lb 7ozs, Emily has so far been the perfect baby despite the struggle to be born!
Antony, 26 and a High School Teacher at Notre Dame School, and his wife Louise, 25, are “thrilled” at the new arrival. Both mother and baby are doing fine, and have been transferred to the Blakeney ward.
Antony said: “We made Norwich our home all those year’s ago because we wanted to bring up our children here. Little Emily is just so perfect in every respect and we’ve both totally fallen in love with her.”
“After such a long labour, holding and cuddling Emily is a real blessing. Babies really do change your life forever and Emily is now the centre of our lives.”
The couple – who live in Trafford Road, in the City Centre – are planning to take a year’s leave between them to care for Emily.
