Judith Ralston is a Scottish singer turned TV presenter. She is one of the main weather girls in BBC Scotland. She delivered twins last year and her joy knew no bounds. So what did Judith Ralston say about them? Let us find out!
Judith Ralston’s double bundle of joy!
Judith Ralston delivered twins Max and Georgia and she was overjoyed when they were laid on her chest the next day after their delivery. They were 9 weeks premature and weighed only 4 lbs each. They were in special neonatal intensive care for 24 hours. Talking about that time, Judith said:
“I was like this mad woman trying to get up to see them. The next day they laid them on my chest, the first time they’d been together, and the most special bit was when they reached out and held each other’s hands.”
“It was amazing to see. Twins can be hard but I didn’t feel any of the hardships because I was so delighted they were here. I know I’m so lucky.”
Judith Ralston was happier since she had suffered two miscarriages before the twins were born.
Talking about those tragedies, Judith said:
“I lost my little girl when she was 24 weeks, a stillbirth really. The other baby was lost really early. I don’t mind sharing it as I know a lot of women go through it. A year on I saw my friend go through the same thing and I was able to talk to her about it.”
Judith Ralston and her husband Frazer (met office forecaster) have a 14-year-old son Alexander. Due to the miscarriages, they were contemplating adoption. And then Judith came to know that she is pregnant with twins. Along with joy was worry and concern about any potential miscarriage. Hence after the safe delivery and on seeing the babies, Judith was ecstatic. For Judith, they are ‘rays of sunlight’.
