Mum and dad chose the name Rio as they both loved it since they found out they were having a boy.

Mum says Rio is happy and always giggling.

His proud grandparents are Granny Elaine Perry, Papa Kevin Perry and Granny Sheila Pratt. Mum and dad would like to give a special mention to Granny Marion and Tom who “give the best cuddles”.

Mum and dad want to thank Rio’s big brother and sisters for “always being a great help and loving him millions”.
