Perfect Christmas present for Dunloy couple

A DUNLOY couple are over the moon after receiving the perfect Christmas present - a baby girl.

Sabrina and Francis Dillon welcomed the latest addition to their family on December 25, naming the little girl Franchesca Rose (right).

Franchesca came into the world two weeks prematurely, weighing 6lbs 14oz.

The baby is the pair's fourth child - and last, for now, according to proud mum Sabrina.

"I think that will have to do!" laughed the 29-year-old on Friday.

"The whole family is delighted, it really was the perfect Christmas present. We couldn't ask for any more."

Franchesca was born at 7.22pm at Antrim Hospital and Sabrina says both baby and her are doing well.

And Franchesca's arrival in the Dillon household has created a real buzz among big sisters Rebecca (11) and Ellie (6) and brother Bobby (3).

"They are absolutely over the moon," said Sabrina.

"They haven't settled since with excitement."

Sabrina - who runs Moyan Munchkins Childminders - said that while the facility re-opens this week after the Christmas break, she intends to put her feet up for the next month or two and take a well-earned rest.
