Ex Countryfile Presenter Julia Bradbury Pregnant With Twins After Successful IVF

The 44-year-old presenter Julia Bradbury has announced that she is pregnant with twins on her fifth round of IVF treatment

The ex Countryfile presenter struggled to conceive a sibling for her three-year-old son Zephyrus after being diagnosed with endometriosis, but is ‘thrilled’ with the happy news that she is now pregnant – and with twins no less.

‘Starting later in life having children, I didn't ever think I'd have a big family. Zeph was the unexpected miracle and I was thrilled and happy to have him. It's taken a long time to get to this stage so the prospect of going from one to three is utterly amazing,’ she told Hello! Magazine.

Adding to Julia and her partner Gerard Cunningham’s excitement is that they soon will be welcoming not one, but two, bundles of joy.

‘It's not an impossibility when you go through IVF. But when we found out at the first scan, we were gobsmacked,’ Julia said.

The TV regular recently announced her departure from Countryfile after five years presenting the show, but will return to other work six months after the birth.
