They were born at 3:01am and 3:03am and were two of the nine babies born at the hospital on New Year’s Day.

They were soon followed by Kairo Kerr, who was born at 4:41am.

Rowena Chilton, Deputy Head of Midwifery for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust said: “Welcoming the first baby of the year is always special. Staff on the units decorate one of the cots and buy the baby an outfit, blanket and teddy for special occasions such as New Year. We send our congratulations to all of the families who had babies born on the January 1.”
