A FAMILY is celebrating the arrival of their little buddle on joy - born on New Year’s Day.

Jodie Roberts and partner Mark Peacock welcomed son - who was being called ‘baby Peacock’ - at 4.40am at Glan Clwyd Hospital.

He has now been named Lucas Marshall Peacock. 

He weighed six-pounds and one ounce.

Jodie, who has children Clayton, aged seven, Riley, aged five, Ebony-Joyce, aged two, and Sydney-Rae, aged one, said: “He was born three weeks early.

“I started getting pains about 2am / 3.30am and then my waters broke.

“It was a bit of a shock to the system. It all happened so quick.

“He is beautiful. He is very good, a very content little boy.”

Jodie, of Meliden, added: "We will cherish him."
