Shen also admitted they kept their daughter Lola in the loop every step of the way, she said: "I think it's so important. I didn't want anything to happen behind her back.
"We've both been totally open with her about it - she's been to scans, the doctor's appointment when we decided how many to put in.
"She knew about the whole process, about how it works and that they grow them and how they turn into cells. So she's been through the whole thing with us."
Congratulations to your family Lucy we can't wait to see the girls.
