FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH may be regarded as an unlucky day but for a well-known Duncannon couple this proved to be a most unforgettable 24hours in their lives.

Last Friday the proprietors of Aldridge Lodge Restaurant and Guesthouse in Duncannon welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world - a baby they never knew they were expecting.

Billy Whitty and Joanne Harding's surprising news was announced publically on the Aldridge Lodge Twitter account on Friday afternoon when it was revealed 'Joanne and myself had a healthy baby girl today, what a surprise we didn't know we were pregnant'.

Baby Kaitlin Whitty was delivered at the B&B around lunchtime and both mother and daughter were said to be 'doing good' following the shock delivery.

'All good we honestly had no idea, she delivered at home in Aldridge!! lunch time today,' they tweeted, following the birth of their first child.

However, just hours later Euro-toques Chef Billy, had to face into a full service at the award winning restaurant and another full restaurant of guests the following night, while mother and baby had been moved to hospital.
