For those of you who have been eagerly awaiting some news on this page, we just wanted to let you know about the safe and sound arrival of our son, Indigo Halyard Lloyd-Mostyn on July 16th, here in New Zealand, just four days after Rocket’s 2nd birthday.


He was born at 2am, in the bath, at home (not on the boat! We’re actually house-sitting at present) entirely naturally at just over 42 weeks and weighing in at a not over cooked 6lb 12oz / 3kgs. We had a fantastic midwife who was supportive and encouraging of our choice to have him at home.


Here are some early photos, including the siblings’ first meeting when Indi was barely 6 hours old and Rocket woke up to a baby brother.


Everything is very well with all four of us and we’re completely smitten with our baby boy.
