It’s a Girl!

baby I’m delighted to announce that my partner, Manuela, gave birth to a baby girl in Tralee General Hospital.

baby2The time of birth was Saturday, May 9th at 8:52pm. 

We’re going to name her Róisín Elena – the Elena for Sant’Elena, the island in Venice where my partner was born. 

The new baby weighed 3.3kg, and was quite tall. She barely fit into her newborn clothes.

It was a long labour, but all was well in the end. We’re both delighted!

I can go to bed happy.

I just wanted to say thanks to all the people who have wished us well over the pregnancy including our families, our friends, our customers, the people following over on Twitter and the readers of this blog!

There’s new little ice cream eater in this world!

And if her mother and father are anything to go by, she’ll have some appetite!

Below is a short video.

  1. Wow! She is absoultely beautiful and so calm and peaceful, just taking it all in. It must be a sensory overload for new borns, from the warm red place out into the world of bright lights! Enjoy every second of her newness!

  2. Congratulations!!
    Am I wrong or is she already oredering her first scoops in the top picture?

  3. My most sincere congratulations! She is cute as a button.

    I wonder what will be Róisín’s favourite ice cream when she grows up :-)

    Very happy for you both.

  4. Oh she is such a cutie. Congrats to you both and welcome to little Róisín.

    Am all emotional now remembering HoneyB at that age. She is a whole 2 now and the time has flown by. Enjoy every minute :-)

  5. Late to the party, but wanted to send you a huge congratulations! She’s absolutely beautiful (look at that full head of hair!)

    Also wanted to say your photography skills are amazing, you’ll be so glad you mastered the art before your baby came into being. I kick myself for not starting sooner when I see Jasper’s newborn pictures.
