BEAUTIFUL babies Kyran Thomas, Sophie Evans and Macy Armstrong-Wilde were yesterday presented with their Baby Of The Year Awards.
All three tots took part in the Adver’s annual competition, sponsored by Persimmon Homes, earlier this year and were voted by readers to the top positions from hundreds of other youngsters who took part.
Blue-eyed Kyran won a £500 cash prize as well as a canvas print of his photograph, a trophy and a certificate.
Runners-up Macy and Sophie, won £250 each as well as the canvas print, trophy and certificate.
Kyran’s mum, 16-year-old Nicole, a student at Swindon College, was delighted that her seven-month-old won.
She said: “I was excited because I’m just so proud that my little boy won it.
“Kyran is such a smiler, he always beams at everyone and he’s a very happy little boy.
“I’m going to put a lot of the money away for Christmas but I want to take him on a little shopping spree.
“I want to get him some new toys and probably a few new clothes, even though he has hundreds of clothes. I was quite surprised about the prize. I didn’t think that I would get that much money and a canvas print.”
The event attracted a record number of entries this year with many people queueing to get their babies snapped by professional photographers around the town.
