She explained: ‘It has nothing to do with the boys not being enough – they absolutely are. It’s just I never felt like I was done.
‘I always had an itch, a desire to have more. My husband and I went round in circles for a couple of years deciding whether or not to just go for the third.
‘I have a demanding full-time job and the reality of having a baby and a toddler within all of that is overwhelming, and we weren’t quite ready.
‘But I had such an emotional attachment to those embryos. I know they’re cells but they have the potential to be another Gene! I couldn’t let it go. Eventually, we decided to go ahead at the end of 2019… and then Covid-19 happened.’
