BABY Thomas Wood has become the fifth generation in a Brighouse family.

Mum Siobhan, aged 23, was delighted when she found out she was pregnant and her whole family was overjoyed at the prospect of welcoming the fifth generation.

There is Siobhan’s mum Sam Hamilton, 39, Sam’s dad Les, aged 61 and his mum Mary, aged 84.

“My great grandma was overjoyed that I was pregnant and I took the baby to see her the day after I had given birth.

“My grandad , Les, always jokes about now being a great grandad. Though my mum is the kind of person who doesn’t really show her emotions, she was there at the birth and she was just overwhelmed when Thomas was born.

“We are a very close family and especially because we are live in the area. We meet up for very special birthdays and I try and see them all at least once a week. If I don’t go and see them I usually get a phone call to make sure everything is ok,” she said.

“People are normally quite impressed when we say there is now five generations and say it is special.

“And I do feel special because I don’t know anyone else who has five generations in their family.”
