Blackpool, baby!

Posted on April 2, 2013

Congratulations to Alex and Lisa Ivanets, proud new parents of Luca Andrey Ivanets, who was born at 11.15am this morning, weighing five pounds, six ounces, in Blackpool.

Luca joins the world during the Junior Festival where his grandfather, Robert Bellinger, is chairman of the festival, and his proud father is one of the judges. What a fitting start to life for the baby of the former UK Close Professional Latin American champions!
