She continued, “It’s a silent battle. There are huge numbers of people, much bigger than recorded, that are going through it.

However, the current statistics don’t reflect the reality in Ireland.

Jenny said the current statistics in Ireland are not up to date. She said so many more people are facing fertility struggles as well as suffering tragic losses.

Jenny announced the birth of her twins on February 24th. She posted a beautiful series of photos following the birth of her daughters.

She confirmed her daughters were born at The Rotunda on February 20th.

The proud mum also confirmed her daughters are called Bella and Capri.

“Myself and Tom are delighted to welcome our beautiful twin daughters to the world. Bella Sky Neville & Capri Lucia Neville were born Monday 20th February 2023. (Girls in Neonatal & doing well).”

Jenny also praised the staff at The Rotunda who helped welcome her baby girls into the world.

“To Professor Jennifer Donnelly & the entire team of midwives & staff @rotunda_private @rotundahospital we thank you so much.”

Baby Bella and Capri are Jenny’s first children.
