London, September 23 (ANI): A beaming little boy has become the first baby to be born at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital in its 157-year history.

Pregnant Nicola Tyler, from Canvey Island, Essex, was staying with her six-year-old daughter Kelly at the hospital where the youngster, a cancer patient, was being treated for non-Hodgkin's ­lymphoma in her neck.

The 32-year-old mother gave birth to baby Zac who arrived four days early at the world-famous hospital that treats sick babies and kids and does not have a maternity unit, reports the Daily Express.

When Nicola went into labour, nurses at the hospital called the maternity team at nearby University College London Hospital but Zac came out quicker than expected.

The history making delivery was made with the help of intensive care senior staff nurse Caroline Kanyanga, ­clinical site practitioner Mike Wise and clinical nurse ­specialist Ailish Barry.icola said: "It is incredible such a broad team of ­specialists helped me give birth to my beautiful baby and I ­can't thank them enough, not just for the care they gave to Zac and me, but for what they have done for Kelly too."
