A Scots family has proven sisters are doing it for themselves — with five generations of direct female descendants.
Little Ava Brown, who is just seven weeks old, became the fifth generation female of her family when she was born on October 5.
Her gender was no shock to her mum, Nana, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, who found out her sex as soon as they could.
There are 79 years between Evelyn McCraw and her great-great-grandaughter.
The family is incredibly excited to have another little girl in the family, and have promised to spoil her.
Her Nana, Evelyn Crawford, 42, said: “We were over the moon when we found out she was a girl.
“You can get so many nice things for girls. As soon as we could we found out she was a girl.
“Ava’s great-great-granny absolutely loves her name and really clicks with her. She’s ecstatic.”
“She’s going to be spoiled rotten this year.”
Evelyn McCraw is the mother of Elizabeth Farrell, 59, who is Ava’s great-granny.
The third generation is Evelyn Crawford, with her daughter Robyn marking the fourth.
Robyn is baby Ava’s mum.
Evelyn added: “It’s really nice having five generations. People think it’s marvellous but they’re quite surprised.
“We were similar ages when we had our children. Robyn and I were practically the same age when we gave birth.
“I turned 21 in the August and had her in the September and she was 21 in September and had Ava in October.
“I’m actually called Nana – I’m too young to be a granny. I’m really enjoying it.”
Evelyn, Robyn and Ava all live in Dunfermline, Fife, while the oldest generations – Elizabeth and Evelyn McCraw – live in Edinburgh.
Evelyn McCraw was married to John, who died several years ago.
They had six children.
Her daughter, Elizabeth, is married to Martin, 62, and their daughter, Evelyn, who is one of three siblings, is married to Alastair, 44.
Robyn’s partner, Scott Black, 23, is Ava’s dad.
