Danica May Camacho was born at two minutes to midnight in the Philippines last night, and became the world's seven billionth baby!

Gorgeous little Danica is one of the United Nations symbolic births and arrived on the day the global population is estimated to have reached seven billion.

The identity of the actual seven billionth baby is unknown, but little Danica has been declared the symbolic recipient of the title, and was welcomed by a clutch of UN officials shortly after her arrival at Manila's Jose Fabella Memorial hospital.

Danica's proud mum Camille and dad Florante were presented with a cake bearing the words 7B Philippines.

Camille commented: "She looks so lovely. I can't believe she is the world's seven billionth."

Danica was showered with gifts including a scholarship grant and a package which will allow her mum and dad to start a business.

Danica is one of several children around the world who have been declared a symbolic seven billionth human.
