THE FIRST baby born at Royal Derby Hospital, who will remain ‘forever young’, was little Taniece Holland from Cotmanhay.

Proud parents Hannah Wright and Matt Holland from Cotmanhay were thrilled at the fact their little daughter was the first baby born at the maternity ward on Wednesday February 29 at 12.10am.

But mum-of-five Hannah, of Donner Crescent, said that despite her special birthday only coming round once every four years, they will always celebrate every year.

“It’s a very lucky day for her to be born on, and we will make sure she has a birthday every year,” she said.

“Even though we’re not sure yet which date we will celebrate her birthday on.”
