Ahead of the birth of her twin boys next month, Rosanna Davison decided to let her hair down and enjoy a virtual baby shower with her nearest and dearest.
The expectant mum was joined by a number of close friends as they celebrated the impending arrivals.
Looking glamorous as ever, Rosanna stunned in a fitted grey dress, which she paired with a gorgeous purple cardigan and Gucci sliders.
“Ditched the usual 7pm jammies and spruced myself up last night for my virtual baby shower organised by some very thoughtful friends. It felt like a Saturday night out…on the sofa,” she joked.
Rosanna, who welcomed little Sophia to the world last November via surrogacy, can’t wait to expand her brood when the little boys arrive in a matter of weeks.
After 14 heartbreaking miscarriages, Rosanna believed she’d never carry her own children, but to her delight, fell pregnant earlier this year.
“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,” she said.
“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.”
The pair learned of her pregnancy in mid-April, but kept it completely private for a few weeks.
“We held onto our lovely secret for a long time because our past fertility challenges have taught us not to get excited about a positive pregnancy test,” she said.
“Losses at any stage of pregnancy are traumatic and can make it more difficult to really believe that your family dreams might come true.”
She continued, “Over the past couple of years, I had done a lot of work on myself to make peace with the idea that I was the girl who would never be able to carry her own child or that I may never even have a family of my own, so the last few months have been a process of reversing what I thought I knew and had accepted about myself. I actually think we’re still in shock.”
