A pregnant mum born on New Years' Day, 1986, found history repeating itself when her own child was born on January 1st, 2011 - and the delivery was almost as dramatic as her own arrival.
When Steph Johnson of Darlington, County Durham was born 25 years ago, her mum, Denise Fishlock, was airlifted to hospital after becoming trapped by snow. For Steph, 8lb 8oz Kyle Michael was born in an ambulance as time ran out on the way to hospital.
The proud mum said: 'I didn't realise the significance of the date at the time.'
Granny Denise added: 'It's history repeating itself.'
