Former Miss World Rosanna Davison is pregnant with twin boys.

The 35-year-old from Dublin, Ireland, announced via Instagram that she and her husband Wesley Quirke are expecting twins in November.

Davison couldn't hold back her excitement when sharing the news.

"@Wesquirke and I are beyond overjoyed to announce that we're expecting identical twin boys this November," she wrote.

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

The pair welcomed their daughter, Sophia, last year via surrogate. At the time, Davison told her Instagram followers that carrying her own baby wasn't an option for her.

"I've been unable to sustain any of my pregnancies, despite the best efforts of reproductive immunology experts and a lot of immune-suppressant medication, injections, intravenous infusions and surgery," she said in the post.

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

The model went on to say the couple had struggled with fourteen pregnancy losses over the past few years before finally welcoming Sophia last November by gestational surrogate.

This time, no intervention was needed and her twins were conceived naturally.

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

Davison added that finding out she was pregnant after the first month of lockdown, when she was more physically relaxed she's ever been, isn't lost on her.

"Perhaps that time out from the stress of busy everyday life made all the difference," she says. "Fertility miracles may take some time, but they really can happen in the most unexpected and magical ways."
