A sweet picture Rosanna Davison posted of her breastfeeding her newborn son Hugo for the first time has touched hearts across the country.

Rosanna and husband Wes Quirke have three babies under the age of two to keep them busy after welcoming their one-year-old daughter Sophia through a surrogate in November 2019.

And after suffering 14 miscarriages, Rosanna found out she was pregnant with twin boys, who she gave birth to in November of this year.

The former Miss World has now shared a very intimate photo of the first time she ever breastfed baby Hugo, just three days after she had given birth.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the model and author admitted she was “incredibly proud” of her body.

She wrote: ‘A favourite photo from a truly bizarre year. Three days postpartum, breastfeeding tiny Hugo in the NICU for the very first time. Hugo was born almost 1lbs smaller than Oscar, although has since caught up. Pair of eating machines!’

‘I was high on happiness and hormones, despite feeling dazed and sore. My swollen postpartum tummy looked like a deflated basketball, although I felt so incredibly proud of it… It had just grown and been home to two perfect little people!

‘I still miss that huge bump. The human body is extraordinary. And the mask is a true sign of the times in a year that we will never forget. Sending you all love and positivity for 2021, and a new year filled with health and happiness."

The post generated numerous messages of support and praise for Rosanna after she previously opened up about her fertility struggles.

The Good Glow podcast host Georgie Crawford commented: "So beautiful. Thank you for giving us all so much hope this year Rosanna."

Broadcaster Lorraine Keane added: "You are an amazing woman Rosie, and so kind and brave of you to share."
