Three families welcomed new additions over Christmas with three babies delivered on Christmas Day – with one couple getting an early surprise.

Troyleta Franklin and Bilal Binns told Bermuda Hospitals Board they were set for Christmas at home together when it became clear their child had other plans.

A baby boy, Lucki, joined sibling Jayden Binns and Ari Cannionier just before 4.30am on Christmas day.

Lucki, who arrived weighing 7lb and 9.1oz, was “so unexpected”, Ms Franklin said.

“All the presents were ready for our Christmas morning.”

Daryl Dill and Staphen Dill were enjoying Christmas morning with daughter, Aren Dill, 5 when they got a surprise extra present.

Ms Dill said: “We had finished opening gifts on Christmas morning – but then there were clear signs I had to get to hospital.

“We thought we were going to have a regular Christmas as the baby was due on January 2.”

Instead, Justice Rose Dill arrived at 9.32am at 6lb and 12oz.

Ms Dill said the baby girl’s middle name came courtesy of her sister.

“Aren has been calling her little sister ‘Rosie’ for many months.”

In the afternoon, the island welcomed a third baby.

Rebecca Ezekiel and George Scott’s bundle of joy arrived at 3.17pm, weighing 7lb.
