Meet our royal Burnett baby 'twin'
WHILE Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were cradling the newest royal baby, another couple was meeting their newborn for the first time on the other side of the world.
Natalia-lee McCoombes was born on Monday, May 6 in the Kingaroy Hospital to proud parents Kirsty-Lee Hinton and Jayden McCoombes.
"She's absolutely perfect, she takes after her father,” Ms Hinton said.
Natalia-lee shares her birthday with the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who they named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
"It's pretty cool,” Ms Hinton said.
The Blackbutt parents did not anticipate their daughter would have any chance of sharing her birthday with the royal as she was born four weeks premature.
"She's doing pretty well for a premi. She was only in the nursery for one night, and she's managed to be in here with me since,” Ms Hinton said.
This early arrival means Ms Hinton's first Mother's Day will be extra special, and much sooner than she thought.
"I didn't expect to have her before Mother's Day, it's a pretty good Mother's Day present,” she said.
The world had waited to find out the name of the Queen's eighth great-grandchild and many were surprised to disover the royal couple opted for Archie, which means genuine, bold and brave, over the traditional name Archibald .
Natalia-lee will share a hyphenated name with her mum, Kirsty, who aspires to be a hairdresser.
Mr McCoombes, who is passionate about motorbikes and concreting, said his daughter's name was inspired by his sister who was now an adoring aunt.
"My sister always wanted kids and it's a name since we were kids she always wanted to call her daughter. I kind of stole her name,” he said.
The new parents, who look forward to watching Natalia-lee grow up, had one wish for their daughter.
"Just to watch her grow up happy and healthy,” Ms Hinton said.
