‘ABSOLUTELY THRILLED’: Rosanna and Wesley with their daughter Sophia. Rosanna is expecting twin boys in November

Rosanna Davison has said "all is looking great" with her pregnancy and that she even got a "thumbs up" from one of her twins during her latest scan.

The former Miss World revealed she is pregnant with twin boys last month, after suffering 14 miscarriages, and going through gestational surrogacy.

Rosanna and husband Wes Quirke will become parents again with the two new additions expected to arrive in November, around the same time their daughter Sophia will celebrate her first birthday.

Posting a photograph of her latest scan on Instagram, the 36-year-old joked that one twin gave her a thumbs up.

"Had my anatomy/anomaly scan today.. all is looking great with the twins & I even got a thumbs up from one of them!" she said.

Rosanna, who is the daughter of Chris de Burgh, announced the exciting news on Instagram last month, writing that she and Wes are "absolutely thrilled" for Sophia to have two siblings.

After struggling with pregnancy loss over the past few years, she said it is an "absolute dream come true" for her it to happen naturally.

We have some news! @Wesquirke 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. 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 gestational surrogate. 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. So for this to just happen naturally, and to have twins too by complete chance, is an absolute dream come true for us ❤️ My doctor can’t offer a medical explanation for why I have been able to sustain this pregnancy and it will probably always remain one of life’s mysteries. However, we found out I was pregnant after the first month of lockdown when 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. We still can’t quite believe it ourselves and it’s taken a long time to properly process it and feel ready to share the news. As if 2020 hasn’t already been packed with enough surprises! 😅 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 🕊 #twinpregnancy #novemberbabies #month5 #halfwaythere #fertilityawareness
