In this week’s issue of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, TV One sports presenter Jenny-May Clarkson and her husband, Dean introduce us to their adorable seven-week-old non-identical twins, who were born on March 22.
Born by emergency C-section, the 42-year-old was working at The Trusts Arena in Henderson coaching her netball team, the Mystics, when she got a call from her midwife urging her to go to the hospital, immediately.
“I thought, ‘Can I fit in one more game?’” Jenny-May laughs, “But then I thought, ‘Nah, my husband would lose it!’”
So, just shy of the 38-week mark, Jenny-May’s healthy baby boys – Anthony Te Manahau Morris (6lbs, 7oz) and Charles Atawhai Te Waka (7lbs, 11oz) - were delivered in Auckland.
Jenny-May and Dean admit the are, understandably, feeling pretty tired, but extremely delighted with their gorgeous little duo.
“It’s just awesome,” says Jenny-May. “We’re really blessed. I’m so, so blessed.”
In Woman's Weekly, the proud parents speak candidly about the reality of having twins, also sharing the touching story behind the naming of their boys, their tumultuous pregnancy journey and their hopes for the twins’ future.
