'I wasn't prepared for the overwhelming amount of love I’d feel' - model Roz Lipsett on the photo she'd hate to lose
It’s been a whirlwind year for Irish model Roz Lipsett.
Last Christmas, the 31-year-old met up with her close friend from school, having lost touch with him for years. Not only was it great to see her old friend again, the model realised he was the man of her dreams.
Fast forward to less than a year later, and the pair are now engaged and expecting their first baby.
Roz is now busy planning for the baby's arrival in February. and a summer wedding next year. while working at her brother Rob's events company The Creator Agency.
Here she tells independent.ie why the ultrasound photo of her growing baby is the one photo she’d hate to lose.
“I love having physical photo memories, you often forget about the ones you take on your phone, but the ones you frame or print out you cherish.”
“The photo I’d hate to misplace the most is the first picture of my unborn baby boy.”
“I recently got my first scan and the nurse gave me one in 4D. I wasn't prepared for the overwhelming amount of love I’d feel, as I was prepared to look at a grainy black and white x ray, but it actually was a very clear picture of my son’s little developing face and body.”
“It just made everything suddenly seem so real, that there was a little being in my body that was going to change my life forever.”

“I am due in February and seeing Junior's first pic was a moment I will never forget.”
“Myself and my fiancée Rob have looked at the photo of the little boy growing inside me hundreds of times, and spoke and laughed about all the possibilities that lie ahead of him and us.”
“We have talked about what he will look like, what kind of person he's going to be and praying for his health and happiness. It's like a little window into the future.”
“The nurse conducting the scan told us he had extra-long legs and a healthy heartbeat. I think he looks a bit like his Dad in this photo, especially when Rob is asleep.”
“I would be so upset if I lost this photo because I want to show this to my son in years to come, as the first photo he's ever taken.”
