THE DETAILS: Hannah Rose Myles was born at 10.20 a.m. on July 31 at Forth Valley Royal, weighing 7lb 1oz.

THE PARENTS: Gillian (34) is a chartered accountant and Stuart (35) is a psychiatric nurse. They already have a son, Evan (3), and the family live in Brightons.

THE PREGNANCY: Everything was fine, according to Gillian, who added she was lucky that both her pregnancies were trouble-free.

THE BIRTH: Labour only lasted three and a half hours from start to finish and later that day mum and baby returned home.

THE BABY: Hannah is an absolutely brilliant baby, says mum. She caught chickenpox at 10 weeks but has now recovered and is back to her happy, smiling little self.

THE NAME: Convinced they were having another boy, the couple had no names picked. Four days after she was born, they finally decided on Hannah Rose

THE GRANDPARENTS: Hannah is the first grand-daughter for Elizabeth and Brian Anderson of Polmont, and another grand-child for Margaret and Findlay Myles of Falkirk.
