LOOK at our baby brother! Jamie Stanyer and Sophia Stanyer with little Alfie Thomas David Stanyer.

Alfie was born to Bethany Moss and Owen Stanyer at Worcestershire Royal Hospital on October 31 last year, weighing 7lb 1oz.



Bethany said: "Alfie stopped growing at my 38-week growth scan so I was booked in for induction.

"Apart from wearing a mask when walking around the corridors I couldn’t even tell anything was even going on. My partner was allowed to visit me whilst I was being induced.

"My induction failed and I needed a c-section when I was exactly 39 weeks – on Halloween."

And it was a good day for Alfie to be born, as Halloween is the same day his great nan Tina Homer’s birthday.
