IT WAS a special moment when Theo Boughton came into the world.

He was the second baby born on Christmas Day at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham.

Theo, who has an older brother Samuel, four, was nine days overdue. He was born at 12.29am on Christmas Day to Joy and Jonathan Boughton, weighing 8lb 8ozs.

Mrs Boughton, 33, of Moody Road in Stubbington, said: ‘It was definitely a surprise. I didn’t expect my waters to break on Christmas Eve. I thought we would get to the big day.

‘I was going to be induced on Sunday so in my mind I said ‘he’s not going anywhere’. But Mother Nature had other plans.

‘It was lovely. The midwives made it as special as they could. They gave him a little box of presents which was really touching. They had gone to a lot of trouble which I wasn’t expecting at all.

‘I had always thought if he was born on Christmas Day it would be awful but it turned out it was really special to be there then.

‘They did everything they could to make it Christmassy.

‘His brother has really taken to him. He keeps checking he’s ok and kissing his head. He’s a very proud big brother.’
