Hayley, 33, had painted her nursery pink, filled it with girly gear, picked the name Isabella and written it on the room’s walls.

Friends threw her a pink-themed baby shower with gifts including an ornament engraved with Isabella, but Hayley was in for a shock when she gave birth after 33-hours of labour at a hospital in Stockton on Tees, County Durham, just over a week ago.

She said: “When the midwife said, ‘He’s here’ I was like, ‘What do you mean He?’

“At two scans I’d been told my baby was a girl”. But when she gave him a cleanup and lifted him she saw his bits.

It meant she had to come up with a new name – Alfie – as well as redecorate the nursery and take back a load of clothing.

Single mum Hayley, a teaching assistant, added that was the craziest experience.

Her dad had quipped, “What would you do if you had a boy?” and it happened.

She said she was over the moon when she found out she was going to have a girl, but that she absolutely loves Alfie and wouldn’t change him for the world and that it was meant to be.

Hayley isn’t the first this has happened to and it won’t be the last, but baby scans are not 100 per cent accurate and errors can be made and what’s wrong with not knowing what sex your baby is and waiting for the surprise at the end of the delivery?

Of course, this is barely a story, it happens all the time, but it’s so nice that the baby was born healthy and that should be the most important thing when having a baby, not the gender of what the baby will be.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
