Rosanna Davison has opened up about her postpartum recovery, after giving birth to twins late last year.
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.
Eight weeks after giving birth to twins, Rosanna has shed light on her postpartum recovery, but she warned her followers that everyone’s journey is different.
Posting a photo of herself in gym gear on Instagram, the mother-of-three wrote: “Had some questions about postpartum fitness: Two weeks ago, my GP gave me the all-clear to exercise again.”
“I started back with some cardio & mat pilates, then last week I began some basic weight training at home. But I’m taking it slowly & safely building up my strength again.”
“Carrying 3 babies around all day is a good workout in itself,” she joked.
“We’re all getting a bit of sleep now so I’ve been squeezing in sessions either 1st thing in the morning or during nap times – it’s not easy but I’m determined to get my strength & fitness back!”
“Making healthy food choices & training right up until the end of my pregnancy has definitely helped with recovery & overall energy levels,” Rosanna wrote.
“Everyone’s postpartum recovery will be different so always speak with your doctor before starting an exercise programme.”
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.”
