Highgate mum Vanich Harvey celebrated an extra special Christmas present this year with the arrival of a new addition to the family.
Mrs Harvey gave birth to a 7lb baby boy at the Whittington Hospital, in Magdala Avenue, Archway, at 7.29am on Christmas Day.
The mother-of-three, who lives in Waterlow Road with her civil engineer husband, is yet to decide on a name for her new child, who has two brothers, aged six and three.
She said: “We haven’t got a name yet so for now he’s baby Harvey. It’s very special to have a Christmas baby and we will all look forward to celebrating his birthday.
“Christmas was delayed until December 27. Baby Harvey’s brothers have been very good and didn’t want to open the presents from Father Christmas until mummy and their new brother came home.”
