Af­ter 11 years as an only child, Valentina Avila is de­lighted to at last be a big sis­ter.

“Valentina had wanted us to have an­other baby for so long, al­though we were happy with just the one,” says mum Diana. “Valentina pushed and pushed, and now we have Isabella.”

Diana says Valentina adores her sis­ter, who in turn gig­gles hap­pily as Valentina dances with her to Latin mu­sic. Al­though gen­er­ally an easy baby, Isabella is very un­set­tled be­tween 10pm and 1am, when she set­tles.

Despite wait­ing so long for their sec­ond child, Diana and her hus­band Car­los took weeks to choose a name.

“Car­los ...could not agree on any­thing for ages,” Diana says, “but we were all very happy with Isabella.”
