Former Miss World Rosanna Davison has announced she and her husband Wes Quirke are expecting a baby girl via a surrogate later this year.

The couple will welcome their baby in November.

Rosanna (35) shared the happy news on Instagram saying it had been a "long and tough journey" for them to get to this point.

She revealed she had suffered a number of miscarriages and had undergone multiple treatments and surgery in the hopes of carrying her own child.

She said she was "incredibly grateful" for the "greatest gift" that would be making their family grow from two to three.

"Wes and I are overjoyed to share the news that we're expecting a baby girl in November (by gestational surrogate). As our families and close friends know, this has been a long and very tough journey for us, sadly with multiple miscarriages along the way," she wrote.

She said the couple had "dreamed of being parents for many years", adding: "We're so thankful for the wonders of modern medicine and reproductive science."

She also thanked "our amazing surrogate for keeping our little daughter healthy and safe".
