The new addition to the family - whose name is yet to be revealed - is happy and healthy and weighs 7lbs, however Sue admitted she was worried about how the coronavirus pandemic would impact her birth.

She told The Sun: "I was more scared than I had ever been going into hospital with everything going on with the virus.

"I was so worried that Noel wouldn’t be allowed to stay with me.

They added they haven’t yet settled on a name, but can't register her at the moment because of coronavirus.

It’s a legal requirement for parents to register a birth up to 42 days after a baby is born.

However, this is usually done at a registry office in the district where the child is born so authorities have currently postponed all registrations for the foreseeable future to adhere to social distancing rules.
