Said Jackie: “We have been over the moon. My dad idolised our Katie but he is not here now unfortunately.

“My mum has dementia but her eyes were just sparkling and all she kept saying was how beautiful the baby was. It was just lovely.

“Katie is so proud and says she will treasure this her whole life. She does not realise what she has done.”
