"I had been very happy throughout the pregnancy but there was always this cautionary shadow on my shoulder that something could go wrong.

"You don't take anything for granted – the five rounds of IVF, the heartaches and failures along the way and making it through the pregnancy. So the moment I felt the deepest joy was when they were both on my chest and I thought, 'They've made it.'"

The star continued: "You have to step up to be a parent – there are always different challenges. There's the challenge of taking care of them at the same time, the physical demands, but I don't think the concentration required for being a parent to twins is any different.

"I just have to be the best parent I can to all three of them, love them all the same, make sure they all feel that equal amount of attention. You can never imagine being able to love a child more than you do but you do. There's this bottomless pit."
