THE arrival into the world of little Jessica-May Braddow on Boxing Day means that there are now five generations of her Newstead family.

Pictured holding Jessica-May is her mum, Demi Beasley (18), with new grandmother Louise Beasley (40), back right; great-grandfather Jeff Ellis (61), back left, and great-great-grandfather Bill Ellis (88), and his wife Sheila, now a great-great-grandmother.

Jessica-May is Demi and her partner Paul Braddow’s first child. She was actually born in the back of an ambulance in the car park of Nottingham City Hospital because Demi’s labour was so quick.

Said Demi: “We didn’t quite make it into the hospital!

“It was mad, because instead of coming out of the hospital with a baby, I came out of the ambulance with a baby.

“Everyone was waiting outside and it was quite emotional.

“She was a lovely Christmas present though.”

Demi said that it is ‘really special’ that there are five generations of her family to fuss over her new daughter — DISPIC NMAC12-0123-2.
