Janet Chadwick of Pakenham has welcomed her first great great grandchild, enriching her family with five generations of members.
The 62-year-old celebrated Easter with family for the first time after welcoming the eight pound-one newborn into their ranks.
There are almost nine decades between four week old baby Bodhi Oldaker, who was born on the 20 March, and his great-great grandmother.
The family gathering included Bodhi’s mum, Rhiannon Chadwick, 22, Bodhi’s grandmother, Racheal Chadwick, 39, his great grandmother Janet Chadwick, and his great-great-grandmother, Audrey Zabaneh, 87.
Racheal Chadwick said the family was thrilled with their latest tiny tot.
“I think it’s an amazing because people that I’ve been telling have said ‘It’s such a rare thing’,” she said.
“You don’t really get the five generations very much anymore.”
“He was due on 14 April so we weren’t expecting him to be here for Easter,” Ms Chadwick said.
She added Bodhi had a little trouble feeding when he was born four weeks premature but was now doing well at home.
“We did all catch up for Easter. It was the first time great great nanna got to meet him.”
