Rosanna Davison has shared some observations she’s made about her “chaotic” life as a mum of three kids under two.

The former Miss World shares three toddlers with her husband Wes Quirke – Sophia, who the couple welcomed via gestational surrogate in November 2019, and twin boys Hugo and Oscar.

Rosanna gave birth to the twins last November in what she has described as a “fertility miracle,” and while she is delighted to be a mum-of-three, she has admitted that life can be “intense and chaotic” sometimes.

She said: “1. It’s as noisy and intense and chaotic as it sounds. There’s generally food all over the floor (and on my clothes), somebody yelling, somebody trying to break into the snack cupboard and a nappy explosion that needs to be urgently dealt with!

“2. An adult per child in the house is ideal and maybe even an extra adult to help sterilise bottles and clean up spillages! A fifth adult to make cups of tea is the ultimate dream,” she joked before adding, “My family has been an amazing help.”

“3. Nothing makes me happier than seeing them all playing together in peaceful harmony, which does occasionally happen!

“4. There are plenty of disagreements over the ownership of soothers - and frequent daylight robberies too.

Rosanna continued: “5. It takes us at least three hours to leave the house with them once they’re all fed, changed and we’ve packed up the car. But we make it out on walks most days.

“6. Everything you need to do must be squeezed into nap time, that sacred 1-2 hours when silence descends. Work, gym, housework, food prep. Nothing much gets done when they’re all awake and I’ve become useless at getting back to messages.

“7. Quickest way to cheer up a room of cranky small children is to pull silly faces and sing badly.

“8. I feel like we’re running a catering company at home, serving up meals, snacks, beakers and bottles all day long. And toddlers really love their snacks! Though none have a night feed anymore.

“9. Teething has been a cause of such pain and discomfort for the twins for months. But for Sophia, we barely noticed her teeth emerging and there was hardly any drama! Wonder if girls really do just have a higher pain threshold?”

Concluding her list, she said: “10. It’s three times the love and cuddles. As I’ve said before, everything is just a phase and we used to find it overwhelming to be outnumbered by little people, but it’s all started to become easier as we’ve really got to know their individual personalities.”
