A Romford mum received a special present this year when her daughter, Ivie Blu Foster arrived just in time for Christmas day.

Cydney Parker, aged 19, from Theydom Gardens, Rainham gave birth to her first born child, Ivie at 6.19am on Monday, December 25 at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way.

Weighing 7lb, Ivie was expected on Wednesday, December 27, but instead to the delight of her mother, she arrived three days early.

Little Ivie has not caused her mum too much trouble yet.

Cydney told the Recorder: “She sleeps most of the time, all during the day and night. So far loads of people have come round to see her.”

Ivie’s mum planned the name of her newborn long before the due date.

“We like the name because it’s old and no one else has it, We decided on it when we found out she was going to be a girl.” said Cydney.
