Guests at a baby shower were left gobsmacked when the mom arrived - cradling her newborn.

Becky Biddulph, 30, turned up to the party holding tiny Henley after giving birth four days earlier.

She and husband James Biddulph, 32, arrived at the garden bash on June 26 with their little surprise.

And some guests were so shocked they initially mistook Henley for a doll - before they realized that the little boy had decided to arrive two weeks early, on June 22.

Becky, who works in care as well as running two businesses and lives in Stoke-on-Trent, England with HGV driver James and her two other children, said: "With Henley being born so close to my baby shower, I just thought it would be the most perfect way to introduce him to everyone.

"It was quite funny seeing everyone’s faces in disbelief, thinking I was holding a doll.

"Once everyone had realized, it was brilliant!

"Funnily enough, we did the same for our wedding - we ended up having a lock down wedding and we didn’t even tell the girls until the night before. Everyone else was told the day after we were married!

"The whole day was just magical. I absolutely loved every second of it and wouldn’t have changed anything."

Becky's friend, Leanne Rowley, 30, filmed the special moment.
