This week: the birth of Calum Robert Bryson

PARENTS Leanne Bryson (31) is a housewife. Dad Calum (32) is a structural glazier. The couple live in Blackwood’s Raith Drive. Calum isn’t their first baby - as they already have a five year old son, Alexander.

PREGNANCY Leanne was one of the lucky ones as she had no particular probems throughout. “It went brilliantly,” she said.

BIRTH Calum plainly has his own sense of timing as he arrived a whopping 11 days after his due date! Once he finally decided to make his debut, the procedure was a quick one. Leanne was in labour for just three and a half hours.

NAME Calum is named after his dad. Robert is the name of Leanne’s brother.

GRANDPARENTS Both sets of proud grandparents are from Cumbernauld. Leanne’s mum and dad Jean and Alex McCallum live in Condorrat. Calum’s parents Pat and Alex Bryson hail from Ravenswood.

THANKS Leanne and Calum want to express their appreciation to family and friends for gifts and cards plus hospital staff for the care and attention they lavished on mother and baby. A big thank-you to you all!
