Deidre’s birthday delivery
The start of 2021 was extra special for Deidre Lewis.
Not only did she deliver the first New Year’s baby at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), but her bundle of joy, Riona Smith, now shares the same birthday as her mother.
Lewis, 38, a mother of five, brought Riona, her third daughter, into the world at 3:32 a.m. yesterday weighing 6.88 pounds.
