'EastEnders' star Jo Joyner shows off her 'miracle' twins on British TV

After four years of trying to start a family, an overjoyed Jo Joyner finally succeeded. And this week the proud mum was showing off her twin babies – who were born on December 7 via caesarean section - on British TV.

EastEnders actress Jo brought three-month-old Edie and Freddie onto This Morning, where she was also determined to give other women struggling to fall pregnant a "positive IVF story".

Thirty-one-year-old Jo and her actor husband turned Neil Madden turned to IVF after years of trying. At the time she was told she may never have children.

"It was very scary when we were first told,' she said. "It was like our world had fallen apart around us."

The couple suceeded using a technique called ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection), which works by injecting a single sperm directly into an egg.

"We're very lucky. It's a miracle really," Jo has said.
