Lisa captioned the Instagram post: “💕Richard & I are Tickled Pink this Valentines Day to announce the birth of our beautiful daughter; Seren Laura Cannon Keatley 💕”

“A Star ⭐️ Was Born on 22nd January 2024, on the stormiest of nights with the help of an amazing team of doctors & mighty midwives @nationalmaternityhospital thanks to them I safely delivered our precious daughter Seren Laura.”

“Thank you to ALL at Holles Street Hospital, the brilliant consultants to the unsung angels in NICU for looking after us both.”



She continued: “‘Seren’ is the Welsh word for a Star ⭐️ & she certainly is the brightest star in the firmament. Laura, is in honour of my beautiful mother; a proud and noble name.”

“Seren came like a comet 💫 blazing her trail into this world she knew exactly how to make her Birthday Unforgettable & Serendipitous! I’ll spend my life loving her & being grateful for it.”

“We would like to thank our parents, families & incredible friends for all their Love, Kindness & Unwavering Support. You are our sunbeams & we love you all dearly.”

In a piece for RSVP, the first time mum wrote: “Her Welsh name Seren seems to be a lovely talking point too and thankfully people think it’s a beautiful name as do we.”

“I can’t take any credit for it, as it was all Richard who had spoke about the celestial name to me 12 years ago long before we were married. It’s virtually unknown elsewhere. Only registered in the 1940s it has a fascinating history.”

“Seren meaning a star in the Welsh language, is derived from Serenity and Serendipity which I believe in very much. With all the serendipitous forces of nature around her it really feels like a very apt name.”

“Seren made her birthday unforgettable when she arrived during a tempestuous storm at seven minutes to seven which is considered a lucky number and she will now always be the brightest star in the firmament.”

She continued: “A star was literally born on January 22.”

“They always shine their light wherever they go and are tremendously powerful and pretty so we felt it was lyrical, beautiful and a poignant name.”

“My mother Laura was always going to be a part of the story book and tapestry of her life.”

She added: “Seren is named after her also; so she holds a proud and noble name and my mother, whom I adored, will always be with me and my daughter too. Our guiding star.”
