Just one day after the birth of royal baby George the Post’s regular baby blogger Nancy Smith welcomed her own little prince ino the world.

Nancy, who has been sharing the ups and downs of pregnancy with readers since April, gave birth to little Ryan at 11.40pm on Tuesday at Queen’s Hospital.

“It was a very long and tiring labour,” the 37-year-old said. “But it all ended well and it’s lovely to have him here.”

Kate and William’s son and Ryan may have very different futures ahead of them but they do share one thing, explained Nancy.

“His middle name is George. Though I actually named him after my grandfather, who’s 95, not the royal baby.”

Nancy, of Thetford Road, Dagenham, said she believed Prince George would be a modern royal. “William and Harry have been more modern than the royal generations were before them, probably because of Diana’s influence,” she added. “I think it will carry on like that, especially after hearing that Harry said he would help George have fun.”

Asked if she enjoyed writing the blog, Nancy replied: “Yes, it was fun. A few mums told me that they found my money saving tips useful. Most mums don’t have the money Kate does so knowing where you can get a bargain can be really helpful.”
