Cameron John Mullinder was born Dec. 21 in the western English city of Bristol, reports said.
“He’s tiny, just under 6 pounds, but he’s perfect,” the Mail on Sunday newspaper quoted her as saying. The baby was naturally conceived.
The 28-year-old married Wesley Mullinder, 37, three years ago.
Her sister, Natalie, who also was conceived through in-vitro fertilization, in 1999 became the first “test-tube” baby to give birth.
