She’d better be calling the baby Gregg! New mother is branded an ‘icon’ for tucking into a vegan sausage roll hours after giving birth
A hungry new mum was caught on camera blissfully enjoying a special moment with her new bundle of joy – a Greggs vegan sausage roll she scoffed just hours after giving birth.
Lottie Adele, 26, from Preston, Lancashire, had just come round after having baby Meadow via C-section on Tuesday when she felt peckish.
The mum-of-two demanded boyfriend Luke Adam nip to Greggs and pick up a tasty snack for her.
Loyal Luke rushed to the Sharoe Green Lane branch of the bakery, and picked up some sausage rolls and vegan sausage rolls for the pair to enjoy.
After returning to Royal Preston Hospital where his partner was recovering, Luke captured a sneaky shot of her cradling the 6lbs 13oz tot while enjoying her savoury treat.

Lottie posted the picture on social media with the playful caption: ‘When the hospital food just doesn’t cut it … @GreggsOfficial (4 hours after giving birth) will do the trick.’
Lottie, from Preston, Lancashire, said: ‘I’d just come round from surgery, I’d had a c-section. I was starving – all I’d eaten was a little bit of toast.
‘Then we were just really hungry, so I made my boyfriend go across the road to get a Greggs.
‘I don’t even eat meat, it was a vegan sausage roll. It was still just as good. My boyfriend got himself about four sausage rolls.
Unbeknownst to Lottie, her boyfriend uploaded the snap to social media, and caught the attention of the popular bakery chain who congratulated the new mother

The new mother said she had no idea the snap of her was going to end up on social media
‘He brought it and then I didn’t even know he was taking those pictures. It was a moment just holding my newborn.
‘I didn’t even realise I wanted it and then he saw the Greggs across the road and I thought ‘I need it’.
‘I didn’t realise how hungry I was but when I had it I was so relieved, It was great.
‘It was a planned C-section so I went into Royal Preston Hospital at 8.30am, had the C-section at about 9.30am, then had my Greggs at about 11.30am.
Twitter users were delighted by the post and joked that Lottie should call her newborn daughter Gregg
‘The doctors and nurses didn’t say anything about it. I felt guilty about not eating the lunch they had made so we ate them sneakily.’
Lottie followed up her post with the comment: ‘Little baby girl born yesterday morning. She’s perfect. And so was the Greggs.’
Greggs saw the post that they shard on their social media toasting the new mum, which read: ‘Congratulations. What a beautiful Sausage Roll.’
One person commented: ‘This will absolutely be me one day, 99% sure I want to serve Greggs at my wedding too.’
Another wrote: ‘I swear she better call the baby Gregg…’
One quipped: ‘She defo got crumbs on the baby.’
Another wrote: ‘Icon.’
