‘We’re having a boy!

‘It was a massive surprise when we found out, as there are loads of girls in our families, so we were adamant we were having a girl.’

The couple’s relationship and Briony’s pregnancy

Briony came to know about the gender of the baby one day before the lockdown commenced. She revealed how they had decided to know the sex of the child together though Sam had to wait in the car due to the lockdown rules. Briony said:

Sam couldn’t come with me because of the current rules, so I got the consultant to write the sex on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope and we both then sat in the car and opened it together. We were over the moon.’
