"When I was pregnant with Aurelia, it was a case of ignorance is bliss – I just assumed everything would be fine and it was. But because I’ve had two losses since her, it was quite a nerve-wracking time until I had the scans."

Asked if there was any point she and Alex thought they may not be able to have another child, she says: "Yes. I would have been heartbroken, but I always thought we were lucky as we were so blessed to have Aurelia."

She now can’t wait to welcome another little girl into her household. "I'm one of two girls and my sister Hayley is my best friend," says Heidi.

"If we can give Aurelia what Hayley and I have, then that’s the best gift in the world. I’m so excited for her that is she is going to have that – but Alex is slightly concerned about the amount of hormones that are going to be in the house!"
