She weighed 3.445kg.
Meanwhile, Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women and Children in Abu Dhabi welcomed two newborns during the first few hours of Eid Al Adha.
The first baby was born at 4.29am, a few minutes before the Fajr prayers on the first day of Eid Al Adha for the family of Kamal Abdul Hamid Sayyah. The Syrian father said: “My wife’s due date was on August 10. But with Allah’s will, she delivered today, August 11, and here we are now celebrating the birth of our fifth child. We have not yet decided on her name. Our baby and my wife are in good health thanks to Allah.”
The second baby born at 4.44am on Eid day at the same hospital was named Baby Yousuf by his parents Omar Yarat and Khulood Al Badri. The baby boy came a week early.
