MANDEVILLE, Manchester:
As the sun rose on the first day of the New Year, 31-year-old Kenisha Edwards from Alligator Pond, Manchester welcomed a bouncing 7-pound-two-ounce baby boy, Jaykar Nelson.


Edwards was delivered at the Mandeville Regional Hospital at 6:37 this morning, exactly four hours after she went into labour.

Despite what Edwards said was a painful delivery, excitement was written all over her face.

“I love my baby so much… he’s an extra special baby, because he is first, at least in this section of the world,” Edwards said.

Edwards who had wished for a boy was over the moon when she realized it her dream came true.

“My first son will be just as excited as I am right now because he was hoping for a brother.

“My daughter had her hopes up for a girl because you know girls always want sisters but she has two already so she’s quite fine,” said Edwards, now a mother of five.

Added Edwards: “His father has been calling me from morning, he is more than excited especially because January is his birth month.”
