THESE bouncing bundles of joy made their entrance into the world on the most special day of the year.
The little ones were eager not to miss out on the festive fun and were extra special presents for their proud parents.
Paisley mum Aileen O’Keefe welcomed the first Christmas baby in Scotland when little Liam arrived at just one minute past midnight.
She and husband Mark didn’t have time to look out for Santa as Liam was keen to join in the festivities and was welcomed into the world at exactly 12.01am at the Queen Mother’s Hospital in Yorkhill, Glasgow.
And the event was made extra special by the face Aileen knew the staff so well – she’s worked at the hospital for the last eight years as a midwife.
Aileen, 39, said: “He’s the perfect Christmas present. My due date was Christmas Day but I didn’t think he would be so punctual.
“This has made Christmas so special.”
She added: “It’s extra poignant for the staff here because I work here. They give the best of care and I can’t thank them enough.”
New dad Mark, 37, added: “It has been a wonderful Christmas – one to remember.”
In Paisley, staff in the maternity unit at Paisley’s Royal Alexandra Hospital were as busy as ever.
Staff there had a hectic Christmas delivering babies to mums from across Renfrewshire.
And these two certainly had a Christmas to remember.
New mum Leah MacGregor and her partner Marc Anderson didn’t have time to open their presents on Christmas morning as they welcomed little baby boy Arran into the world at 11.35am.
Arran is the first baby for the proud couple who live in Paisley and he weighed a healthy 7lbs 9oz.
Later that afternoon, new parents Saddaf and Abid Sethi had to give up their dinner when their son Abdul Hakim was born.
The Paisley couple welcomed their beautiful boy into the world at 1.57pm weighing 6lbs 14oz.
