Tyler-Rose Boxing Day babe
MURWILLUMBAH mum Minalla MacDonald managed to "hold off" to give her newborn daughter a birthday of her own, rather than sharing presents with everyone on Christmas Day.
Born at 1.11am on Boxing Day at Murwillumbah District Hospital, weighing 3.32 kilograms (seven pounds four ounces) Tyler-Rose Ludlow became the fifth generation of Ludlows born on the North Coast.
She has not one, but two great-great-grandparents, living at Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby.
Apart from her ready-made extended family, Tyler-Rose has a sister to play with in Paris, who is close in age at 18 months.
Tyler-Rose's proud Dad is Bradley Ludlow of Murwillumbah, while grandparents are Jennifer Fisher of Murwillumbah, Rodney MacDonald of Victoria, and Lynda and Kelvin Ludlow of Glen Innes.
Mum Minalla said she didn't want a Christmas baby, so she was pleased Tyler-Rose chose Boxing Day to come into the world.
"I wanted her to get her own presents, as Paris's birthday is in June, and she gets her own birthday," Minalla said.
"We'll just hit the Boxing Day sales next year in a big way for her birthday."
