A KESSINGLAND couple were the first in Norfolk to become parents on New Year's Day.
And little Jessica Davis has completed a special line up of five generations of her family - and they're all girls.
She was born to mum Sophie Wright and dad Michael Davis at 12.07am in the James Paget University Hospital at Gorleston and weighed 6lb 15oz.
And on Wednesday - when she was originally due to make her arrival - she was introduced to her extended family, which includes her nanny, great grandmother and great great grandmother.

She remained in hospital until Friday when she was finally allowed home to St Edmunds Crescent in Kessingland with her mother Sally Masters, 39.

As well as her nanny, Jessica is also bound to be spoilt by her great grandmother Linda Rowlands, 60, of Amy Court, Lowestoft, and great great grandmother Evelyn Rowlands, of Manor Court, Lowestoft, who declined to give her age, but with a twinkle in her eye admitted it was over 21.
Jessica is Evelyn's first great, great granddaughter, although she already has 16 great grandchildren, while her daughter Linda has nine grandchildren.
'This is the first time I've seen her,' said Evelyn of Jessica. 'I love babies, I'll take her home if you like,' she laughed.
Michael added: 'I have got a lot of nephews and nieces and it will be nice to have my own child to fuss over.'
