Little baby Enora, who came into the world at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary just before the sun started to rise today, was an extra special Christmas gift for proud Aberdeen mum Joanita D’Souza.
The healthy wee girl, at 7 pounds and 7 ounces, was this morning cuddled up and content with her 34-year-old mother after being born at 4.45am.
Ms D’Souza said: “I was very worried, scared, there were a lot of mixed feelings as this is my first baby. But at the end, as everybody says, when you have the baby in your hands you just forget about everything else, and that’s what happened to me.
“All the pain, everything was just forgotten when I had her in my arms.”
Ms D’Souza, from Torry, was unsure of a name for her child, but explained that she came up with Enora’s name it just made sense.
Ms D’Souza said “Everbody kept saying that I was going to have a boy, and I really didn’t know, but it just came to me, Enora. And I checked it up online and saw that it means ‘honour’ in Hebrew, so it felt right.
“And it’s a good thing she’s a girl because I didn’t even choose a boy’s name.”
