LITTLE Amelia Shawcross, from Wisbech made an unexpected arrival on New Year's Day.
A New Year baby was not what her mother Emma expected, as she was not due until January 18.
She was the fifth child and a third girl for Mrs Shawcross, who lives in Wisbech, but was staying with her husband Terry's parents in Attleborough when the baby decided to make her appearance.
She was the first girl of the new decade in Norfolk and she arrived at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital at 2.09am weighing 7lb 4oz.
Mrs Shawcross, 26, is studying biochemistry at Anglia Ruskin University while Mr Shawcross is studying mental health nursing at the University of East Anglia.
They named their daughter after Enid Blyton's Amelia Jane books.
