Rosanna Davison has shared that she intends to make “Christmas as magical as possible” this year as she awaits the arrival of her twin boys, due this month.
Yesterday the former Miss Universe had one last event before her due date as she switched on the Christmas lights and decorations at Carrickmines Park.
Speaking with the Irish Sun the star shared how she plans to spend Christmas this year; “After what’s been such an unusual year for us all, I’m especially excited about this Christmas.”
“Of course, it will be very special with the arrival of our new twin boys, so we intend to make Christmas as magical as possible for them and Sophia.”
“If restrictions allow it, we’ll most likely visit my parents on Christmas Day and may even stay with them for a couple of nights.”
She also spoke about when she first shared the happy news with her family. After 14 heartbreaking miscarriages, Rosanna believed she’d never carry her own children, but to her delight, fell pregnant earlier this year.
“One of my favourite parts of my pregnancy was telling my brothers at the 12-week mark that we were not only expanding our family, but that I was the one pregnant — and that it’s identical twin boys.”
“The shock on their faces was priceless! They’re very excited to become uncles again and we really hope that they’ll make it home from London at some stage in the near future to meet their new nephews.”
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.
“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 author and nutritionist is expecting two bundles of joy in a matter of weeks, and can’t wait to finally hold them in her arms.
Sharing a snap of growing bump, Rosanna said, “33 weeks down, 3 to go! Even my maternity clothes are ready to burst.”
