She captioned the post: “As it is National Fertility Week, we just wanted to share a glimpse of our amazing IVF journey.

“From the initial injections, to the transfer of of Kate’s egg to me, it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions, but one we wouldn’t change for the whole world!

“We were extremely lucky that it worked first time, as we know the journey can be a lot harder for some. So whatever stage you are at with your fertility treatment, try and stay strong and positive. Teddy, you made it all worthwhile.”
