Rosanna Davison announces she's expecting twins following a 'challenging fertility journey'

The 36-year-old welcomed a baby girl via gestational surrogate last year.

Rosanna Davidson has announced that she is expecting twins with husband Wes Quirke, following a "challenging fertility journey."

The 36-year-old former Miss World welcomed a daughter, Sophia, last year via gestational surrogate after she suffered 14 heartbreaking miscarriages.

Taking to Instagram today, Rosanna shared the news that she is pregnant with identical twin boys, due in November.

"We have some news!" the post began.

"Wes and I are beyond overjoyed to announce that we’re expecting identical twin boys this November."

"We’re absolutely thrilled to complete our family and for our daughter Sophia to have two siblings so close in age to her," she said.

Rosanna said she was told by doctors that she would never be able to carry a baby due to a medical condition, and her current pregnancy remains a medical mystery.

"As I’ve spoken openly about this year, we struggled with fourteen pregnancy losses over the past few years and a challenging fertility journey before finally welcoming Sophia last November by a gestational surrogate."

"I was told that I would probably never be able to carry my own baby due to suspected immune system dysfunction, which numerous different medical treatments failed to rectify."

"So for this to just happen naturally, and to have twins too by complete chance, is an absolute dream come true for us," she continued.

The couple found out that they were expecting during the first month of COVID-19 lockdown.

"I was far more physically relaxed than I’ve been in years and enjoying the slow pace of family life at home, despite the anxiety and sadness in the outside world. So perhaps that time out from the stress of busy everyday life made all the difference," she said.

Now at 5 months pregnant, Rosanna and Wes say they still cannot believe the news which has taken a long time for them to process.

"Fertility miracles may take some time, but they really can happen in the most unexpected and magical ways."

"As always, sending so much love to those of you still on your baby journey. Never give up hope," she encouraged.
