Aneeta Eversley and Junior Edwards received an “extra special delivery” in the wee hours of this morning.
They welcomed baby Janaee Aniyah at 3:38 a.m. at the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The healthy and beautiful baby girl decked in a pink hat and white jumper with pink hearts was the first Independence baby for the day on the island. She was also the only one up to midday.
“I feel good on the whole having a baby girl. I wasn’t expecting the whole independence thing, so I guess it is something extra special but she is extra special to me on the whole,” Eversley said, while a proud looking Edwards added, “it feels good, I am thankful.”
The parents were expecting the birth of their baby next week but said “she had other plans”.
” It was an experience. I am still at the phase that you don’t feel like you actually did it,” Eversley
