Double celebration for MP Chris
NEWLY elected MP Chris Skidmore has another reason to celebrate – he's just welcomed his third child.
Ottilie Florence Skidmore was born on Thursday November 21 at 6.19pm, weighing 6lbs and 7oz. She was eight days overdue.
Little Ottilie was three weeks old on December 12 - election day.
The Kingswood Conservative MP, who recently marked his fifth wedding anniversary to wife Lydia, said: “I’m so proud of my wife Lydia who has been amazing, and want to thank the NHS staff who have cared for us.
“Ottilie is beautiful and I’m an extremely proud dad. Her sister Clemmie and brother Henry are also delighted to have a little sister. I took some time off the election trail to spend it with my family - it’s certainly a new challenge getting used to three children five and under! It’s an amazing time despite the lack of sleep.”
