A COUPLE have welcomed their first child together on New Year’s Day.
Ophelia Angelica Meikelina Gettings was born at 2.08am weighing 7lb 5oz.
Mum Claire South, 36, already has three boys: Zac, 11, Elliot, seven, and Otto, three.
“We’re just delighted to have a girl finally after three boys,” she said.
Ophelia is Claire and partner Paul Gettings’ first child together.
Paul also has a 16-year-old daughter, Chloe Gettings.
Claire said the couple did not believe they would be having a girl.
“We had three scans to tell me but I still didn’t believe it until she arrived,” she said.
The family live in Kingsmead, Felpham, and Claire and Paul are planning to marry in April.
