They said, “Gracie-Mae now weighs 8 pounds 9 ounces and she is two weeks old today.
“She is an absolute dream and we couldn’t be happier right now.
“She’s changed so much since she was born, we tried to get some great photos last night in her jacket, but she had other ideas.
“She’s shy in front of the camera, just like her older brother Kieran, and nothing like Bradley, he absolutely loved having his picture taken.”
Parents also said they were taking Gracie-Mae to her first game in Sunderland “as we welcome the Bradley Lowery Foundation box for a lovely family to enjoy and make memories.”

They added: “Thanks to everyone who sent me greetings, cards and gifts, it’s really appreciated.”
The couple announced the pregnancy in May, sharing a photo of baby clothes with the words “handpicked for Earth by my brother in heaven” next to an ultrasound from Gracie-Mae.
The birth of the baby was also announced in a Facebook post, in which Gemma wrote: “Hi everyone, just an update to welcome our beautiful little princess into the world.

“I haven’t had the best job but I’m not going to bore you all with the details. I had to have an emergency C section because her heart rate dropped and they needed her.
“She is now fine and we are going home.
“Me and Carl are now going to spend some family time with our beautiful princess. “
Little Bradley was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma, a condition that mainly affects babies and young children, when he was just 18 months old.

In a social media post for the Bradley Lowery Foundation, Gemma wrote: “Baby Lowery number 3 is on the way… Bradley is going to be the best Guardian Angel for his little brother or sister.”
He was the mascot of Sunderland FC and led England to Wembley alongside their hero, former Black Cats striker Jermain Defoe a few months before his death.
The whole nation was moved by Bradley’s cancer journey and the public raised over £ 1.3million to send him to the United States for antibody treatment.
But Bradley’s parents learned their son only had “a few months to live” in December 2016.

He received hundreds of thousands of greetings and cards from around the world over the Christmas period when people learned that Bradley’s cancer was terminal.
The Bradley Lowery Foundation supports research into this rare disease and childhood cancers.
Neuroblastoma develops from specialized nerve cells left behind by a developing baby in the womb and affects around 100 children each year in the UK.
Together with other research charities, the foundation has donated over £ 280,000 to research on neuroblastoma and Ewing’s sarcoma.
