Congratulations to Rainbow residents Colette Marie Brennan and Steve Hiley, (known as Letty and Beaver) as they welcome a new daughter into the world.

Lyla Marie Hiley weighed 6lbs 10 ounces and with very long legs (they say unlike mum and dad) was 52cm in length at birth.

“She had a whopping 35cm head circumference,” said Letty, “Now, that is like her dad!”

It is no surprise that like both parents, the gorgeous little girl is also a blonde.

“She was due on 14th December but arrived at Gympie Hospital on 28th November at 01:08. She’s impatient like me. The midwives were fantastic.”

“She’s our first child and first grandchild to both families. She was a blessing, as I had an ovary removed in 2012 due to a growth, and was told it would get harder for me to conceive. We do aim to have a brother or sister for her within the next two years, fingers crossed.”

Letty is originally from the UK and Beaver is from the Sunshine Coast and now works for Rainbow Beach Adventure Company. The couple met in Rainbow Beach and love living here.

Letty says, “It makes us both so happy knowing our daughter gets to grow up in such a beautiful place.”
