The 41-year-old recounted how she had decided to try and have another child nearly three years ago but had been given a "very rude shock" when she found out her chances of conceiving.
“I made the decision that the right path for me and my little family was to go through IVF with the help of a donor,” she told the panel. "So I went to the clinic, I think most women in their late 30s would know that when you walk in to see an IVF specialist and you’re shown the graph, that gives you a very rude shock about your chances.
“From then on it was a case of fingers crossed, and I had my eggs retrieved and all of this is happening. But you don’t share it necessarily because you don’t know if you’re going to have any success.
“I was given a seven per cent chance of having a baby, so it’s still a bit of a shock for me, it’s still sinking in but we’re just really thrilled.”
