Former Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury says she had to "pinch" herself after giving birth to twins at the age of 44.

The broadcaster, who already has a three-year-old son Zephyr with partner Gerard Cunningham, had the girls, named Xanthe and Zena, after undergoing IVF.

She told Hello! Magazine: "It's my dream come true and I feel incredibly lucky.

"I still pinch myself and think, 'I'm a mother of three.' All the effort, everything we went through as a family, is more than worth it.

"I had been very happy throughout the pregnancy but there was always this cautionary shadow that something could go wrong. You don't take anything for granted - the five rounds of IVF, the heartaches and failures."
