The news of her pregnancy overjoyed Christine and her partner who had been struggling to hear the good news for so long.
Christine just couldn’t believe what was going on as she always dreaded that feeling of never becoming a mother.Her 20-year eating disorder was not only life-threatening but a physical and mental draining experience for her where reports confirmed how her weight dropped to just 20 stone.
Doctors feared the worst for her with a weight so low, explaining how her eating struggles had probably left her infertile for good.
But after years of help, support and encouragement, she was able to get back on track with her routine. And in the end, she became pregnant after going through her fourth IVF round.
Today, the miracle mum claims she feels uber proud when looking at her beautiful babies which include twin daughter Emily Tracey and Grace Christine. They reportedly arrived just three minutes apart from one another.
“After my weight struggles due to anorexia, my periods completely stopped. I honestly felt like I had lost all the chances of being pregnant and having children at all. But now, I have both and it’s double the joy. The mum of two says it was always her dream to have children and she just couldn’t be happier now.
“I know many will say I’m just too old to be a mother but this is all about what I want and what’s right for me, not what other people think.”
