All this rayal baby talk is just a big; SCOTS TOTS WHO MADE THEIR BIG ARRIVAL ON SAME DAY AS PRINCE Sleepy little Ross arrives blissfully unaware of birth of the future king.

Byline: Neil Pooran

LITTLE Ross Holmes is a bit tired. Being born is hard work - especially when everyone keeps going on about some other baby who appeared at the same time as him.

The yawning youngster was just one of scores of babies in Scotland born on the same day as the young royal.

His proud parents Helen, 37, and Mark, 41, from Glasgow's south side, were delighted when Ross arrived at 5.14pm at the city's Southern General Hospital.

Helen had a Caesarean section in the afternoon and, when she came round, was told that she'd had a son - just like Kate. Yesterday, Helen said: "I was delighted he was born on the same day.

It'll be amazing. It's going to be a different upbringing but he is going to do well."

Meanwhile, at Glasgow's Royal Maternity Hospital, Yvonne Jones, 27, and husband Iain, 27, joked that it "would be something else" if their daughter Cassidy ended up an item with the royal baby after she was born at 4.14pm.

Yvonne, of Lennoxtown, near Glasgow, added: "I hadn't expected to have my baby on the same day. I'm delighted."

Mark and Ami Brenchley were delighted after their first child was born 16 minutes after William and Kate's son.

Robert was born at 4.40pm at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary to his parents from Currie, Midlothian. Ami, 29, said: "It's been amazing. I feel like I've known him for years but it's only been a day."

Four babies arrived on Monday at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital.

Parents David, 34, and Pamela Paterson, from Portlethen, welcomed little Jenna Paterson into the world at 2.09pm. Pamela said: "I feel quite privileged.

"We have been here since Thursday and that's the longest we've been away from our youngest Lucy. We got pretty lucky."

Also celebrating were Casandra Adewumi, 35, and her husband Adeyinka, 39, of Woodside, Aberdeen, who had a second daugher, Teniayu. Casandra said: "I'd say to Will and Kate, just enjoy being with your baby - it's the best feeling."

An hour after Kate gave birth, Linda Hoskins, 27, was welcoming her own Prince Charming, Hudson, into her and husband Chris's lives.

Linda, of Aberdeen, said: "I was in hospital when I heard that Kate was in labour and found out later that we both had boys when my friend texted me."

The final arrival of the day in the city was at 7.38pm, when Christine and Joseph Clark welcomed Sophie to join sisters Shanelle, six, and Rachel, five.

Christine, 29, said: "It was very quick but it was a relief as I was two days late, which made it the same day as Kate."

At Inverness's Raigmore Hospital, Kerry MacIntosh gave birth to baby Jessica at 3.42pm - less than an hour before the royal arrival.
