In the early hours of September 26, 2016, Kate Mason gave birth to a little girl who tipped the scales at just over eight pounds. It was a healthy weight and one that confounded concerns that the new mother’s baby would be on the small side. However, there was something about the newborn that left everyone – not least her parents – in complete and utter shock.
Like most parents-to-be, Kate Mason, who hails from Lincolnshire, U.K., and her partner, Tony Holloway, were probably over the moon when they discovered that they were expecting. And although they were already mom and dad to an Old English Sheepdog called Bertie, the couple could be forgiven for having felt a little anxious about their impending new arrival.
