Daily Mail reported Kelly received the news after undergoing a routine scan and as a result, she was warned that she may have two labours as each baby is in a separate womb.
“...So when I went for this scan, I was really surprised to learn that I have two of them! I just thought, ‘God, that’s a shock’,' she said.
"It makes you feel incredibly grateful that this has happened to you and you get to have two amazing babies,” she added.
