Family had been in isolation
Born in the time of the coronavirus, Sue described her baby’s birth as her “strangest” yet with fears clouding her head. The family was said to be in isolation then and Sue felt that there could be risks by leaving their house to visit the hospital.
“I was more scared than I had ever been going into hospital with everything going on with the virus.”
But things turned out well once they arrived at the hospital.
Sue even vowed that the newborn would be the final child of her extensive family. Though… previous reports mentioned that she had said the same in the past.
Undecided on baby’s name
It was said that no name had been decided at the time of her baby’s birth.
“We can’t settle on a name we all like, but we can’t register her now anyway because of corona.”
