Rosanna Davison is sick and tired of 'the baby question'.

The former Miss World (33) wed long-term love Wesley Quirke in 2014 and has been plagued by questions about starting a family, lamenting the fact that her husband doesn't get put under the same pressure.

After the couple exchanged vows three years ago, Davison, a model and nutritional therapist, said they were constantly asked about when they would have babies, but she explained their reason for marrying was a personal one because "we were together for so long".

"Wes is also really busy with his career and business so I guess when people see that your reasons for getting married were not just to settle down and have a family, they stop asking," she told the Irish Sunday Mirror.

"There's definitely more pressure on me, nobody really says to them, 'When are you going to have a family and stop working?'"

And Davison said she'll be keen to work after having children.

"I think I'll always work but I've so much admiration for women who dedicate themselves to their home and family. My mum was a stay at home mum, she had plenty of interests of her own and hobbies, but I've seen it's probably the hardest job in the world to run a home and family, it's huge work," she added.

"But I guess at the same time, I've put so many years into my career and studies that I'd love to try and continue it in some way when we have a family."
