Mum Dannielle Patterson is a self-employed beautician, while dad Lewis Patterson is a coachbuilder.

Big brother Lucas had been hoping for a little brother, but he absolutely loves his little sister and is so good with her. The family live in Banknock.

Mum said the pregnancy went really quickly. She was monitored closely throughout her pregnancy as baby was measuring a bit on the smaller side.
