Mian Farrah, 37, was supported through a six hour labour by her husband and two sisters who are staying at their home in Upton Park Road to give the new mother some sleep after giving birth.

Mian now has another little girl to introduce to her three-year-old daughter Fajr Ali.

The family have yet to find a name to describe their newborn angel - an early starter born weighing 6lbs 8ozs at 8.40am.

Mother Mian said: “We haven’t decided what to call her yet so we’re calling her Baby Mian.

Also present to welcome the Baby Mian were her cousins Rameen Asim, four, Hareem Asim, one.
