INTRODUCING more of the little bundles of joy who have brightening up countless lives in the midst of a global pandemic.

We have been asking you to send through pictures of your babies who have been born since the initial outbreak of coronavirus in March - and you have not disappointed.

These photographs show five cheeky boys who have been welcomed into the world in these difficult times.

We want to see more of your lockdown baby snaps, so get involved by completing the form below.

Your little bundle of joy could feature in the Echo and on our website.
