Rosanna Davison has shared the reality of life as a new mum-of-three in a candid post about motherhood.
The former Miss World and her husband Wes Quirke welcomed identical twin boys, Oscar and Hugo, in November.
The couple are also parents to their one-year-old daughter Sophia, who they welcomed via surrogate in 2019.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday night, the 36-year-old shared a photo of herself cuddling one of her sons, and wrote: “Today has been a tough one.”
“A combination of sleep deprivation from last night, two relentlessly colicky babies & general lockdown/pandemic anxiety.”
“So grateful for our beautiful babies & health in this challenging time, but it’s not an easy time for anyone. Sending lots of love to you all,” she added.
The news comes after Rosanna recently admitted lockdown as a new mum-of-three has been “challenging”.
In a post shared on Instagram, the former pageant queen got candid about the challenges that come with parenting during a global pandemic, as she celebrated seven weeks since the birth of her sons.
Sharing a sweet snap of her newborn’s foot, the 36-year-old wrote: “Seven weeks of Hugo & Oscar.”
“It’s flown by in a bit of a blur of sleepless nights, nappy changes, endlessly soothing colicky babies and constant feeds, while also keeping on top of Sophia’s routine. She’s still not too pleased about their arrival!”

“It’s a magical time getting to know these two gorgeous little people, but it’s also a challenging time to be a new mum or dad in lockdown without a normal support system in place,” she confessed.
“We’ve just been taking it day by day, looking after each other and trying to stay positive.”
Rosanna continued: “There have been days recently when I’ve felt really anxious though – what if one or both of us got sick and couldn’t take care of them?”
“It’s so important for us to be patient and kind to ourselves, and do whatever we can to support our emotional well-being and resilience.”
“Being given the all-clear to start exercising again has given me a great mood boost, and I’ve been trying to take a little bit of time each day to myself just to get outside for some fresh air.”
The model mum added: “I hope you’re all coping as well as you can, and looking after your mental health as much as possible.”
“Sending extra hugs to new parents finding it all a bit overwhelming.”
