They said: ‘Gracie-Mae now weighs 8lb 9oz and she is two weeks old today.
‘She is an absolute dream and we couldn’t be happier right now.
‘She has changed so much since she was born, we did try and get some nice photos last night in her vest but she had other ideas.
‘She is camera shy just like her oldest brother Kieran, and nothing like Bradley he absolutely loved his photo being taken.’
The parents also said that they were taking Gracie-Mae to her first Sunderland match ‘as we host the Bradley Lowery Foundation box for a lovely family to enjoy and make memories’.

They added: ‘Thank you to everyone that has sent me well wishes, cards and presents it is really appreciated.’
The pair announced the pregnancy in May, sharing a picture of baby clothes with the words ‘handpicked for Earth by my brother in Heaven’ alongside an ultrasound scan of Gracie-Mae.
The baby’s birth was also announced in a Facebook post, in which Gemma wrote: ‘Hi everyone just an update to welcome our beautiful little princess to the world.

‘I didn’t have the best of labour but I’ll not bore you all with the details. I had to have an emergency C section as her heart rate dropped and they needed her out.
‘She is now doing amazing and we on our way home.
‘Myself and Carl are going to now enjoy some family time with our beautiful princess.’
Little Bradley was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma, a condition mainly found 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 on its way… Bradley is going to be the best guardian angel to his little brother or sister’
He was a mascot for Sunderland FC and led England out at Wembley alongside his hero, former Black Cats striker Jermain Defoe months before his death.
The whole nation was moved by Bradley’s journey with cancer and the public raised more than £1.3million to send him to the United States for antibody treatment.
But Bradley’s parents were told that their son had just ‘months to live’ in December 2016.

He received hundreds of thousands of wellwishes and cards from all around the world over the Christmas period when people heard that Bradley’s cancer was terminal.
The Bradley Lowery Foundation aids research into this rare disease and childhood cancers.
Neuroblastoma develops from specialised nerve cells left behind from a baby’s development in the womb and affects around 100 children every year in the UK.
In collaboration with other research charities, the foundation has given more than £280,000 to research towards Neuroblastoma and Ewing Sarcoma.
