LITTLE Hollie Austin is five time a lady.

The new arrival marks five generations of girls in mum Emma Unsworth’s family.

As well as new arrival Hollie and 24-year-old Emma, there is grandma Jill Unsworth, 43, great-grandma Margaret Ritson, 66, and 87-year-old great-great-grandma Elsie Edwards.

All five generations got together for a family photograph at Elsie’s home in Viewforth Drive, Fulwell.

“It is just the best feeling in the world being a grandmother,” said Jill.

“And my grandmother Elsie is absolutely over the moon with Hollie.

“It’s not often you get five generations of girls.”
