A PROUD mum started 2018 off with a new bundle of joy.

Amy Pearson, of Ruthin, was pictured at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan with her new daughter, born at 1.09am on New Year's Day.

Amy and her husband were yet to decide on a name when our photographer Phil Micheu paid the couple a visit.

The baby girl weighed in at 8lb and 1oz.
