Reggie’s grandma Andrea Parkinson said: “I ’m a mother to three children, Leah, Ryan and Megan.

“I was so excited when Leah asked me to be her birthing partner. Leah is a full-time mum to Reggie and is a brilliant mother to him.

“We have all started our families at quite a young age and if Reggie was to follow suit it is possible James could one day be a great great great grandad! We are a close family and we are all very proud of Reggie, he has brought the family even closer.

“He is certainly going to be one very spoilt little boy this Christmas!”
