Taking to the comment section, Rosanna admitted her daughter was “so keen” to get going – labelling the tot “Little miss independent”.

Rosanna and Wes decided to go down the surrogacy route, after the model suffered 14 miscarriages over the course of a few years.

The former Miss World recently shared photos of her baby sonsโ€™ space-themed nursery on Instagram, as their due date edges closer.

Rosanna captioned the post: โ€œThe nursery for our twin boys is pretty much ready and we had a bit of fun with the outer space theme!ย ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒž.โ€

The model mum delighted her followers back in July, when she announced that sheโ€™s expecting identical twin boys.

Rosanna wrote on Instagram at the time: โ€œWe have some news! @Wesquirke and I are beyond overjoyed to announce that weโ€™re expecting identical twin boys this November.

โ€œWeโ€™re absolutely thrilled to complete our family and for our daughter Sophia to have two siblings so close in age to her.โ€

โ€œAs Iโ€™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,โ€ she continued.

โ€œI 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 usย โค๏ธโ€

โ€œMy doctor canโ€™t offer a medical explanation for why I have been able to sustain this pregnancy and it will probably always remain one of lifeโ€™s mysteries,โ€ Rosanna wrote.

โ€œHowever, we found out I was pregnant after the first month of lockdown when I was far more physically relaxed than Iโ€™ve been in years and enjoying the slow pace of family life at home, despite the anxiety and sadness in the outside world.โ€

โ€œSo perhaps that time out from the stress of busy everyday life made all the difference. We still canโ€™t quite believe it ourselves and itโ€™s taken a long time to properly process it and feel ready to share the news. As if 2020 hasnโ€™t already been packed with enough surprises!โ€

โ€œFertility 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,โ€ she added.
