    ITV News presenter Andrea Catherwood has given birth to identical twin boys six weeks prematurely.

    The 37-year-old had a Caesarean section after complications set in during her pregnancy.

    Doctors found the babies were suffering from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, which occurs when twins share a placenta and one receives more nutrients than the other.

    The boys, who are yet to be named, are in intensive care in a London hospital but are said to be doing well.

    Catherwood’s lawyer husband Gray Smith, 39, was present at the births.

    A spokeswoman for the Belfast-born presenter said: “Andrea is understandably delighted to have identical twin boys and she has described them as gorgeous.”

    She added: “It was clearly a very stressful time and although they are very small they are doing well.

    “The babies are currently being well looked after in intensive care and doctors are monitoring their progress.”

    The couple, who married in 2002, already have an 18-month-old son, Finn.

    Poor Andrea – she never seems to have a easy time of it (if you can say that about child birth) I wish mum dad and big brother all the best with the new additions to their clan.

    ITN news reporter Andrea Catherwood has spoken of the double trauma of losing her father and discovering her unborn twins had a potentially fatal condition.

    The former foreign correspondent, who was born and bred in Belfast, found out she was pregnant just one month after burying her beloved father Harry, who died of heart failure.

    Andrea and her husband Gray, who have another little boy called Finn, were told the devastating news that the unborn babies had twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, a rare condition which occurs when twins share a placenta.

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, Andrea said she had nowhere to hide when hit by the double trauma.
