A mother of four boys has given birth to twin girls after going abroad to have sex selection treatment which is banned in UK.
The Chenerys: No regrets
Property developer Nicola Chenery, 33, gave birth on Saturday at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, Devon, a family member confirmed.
Mrs Chenery and her husband Mike, from Plymouth, now have two girls - one weighing 4lb 9oz and the other 4lb 13oz.
Mrs Chenery told The Mail on Sunday: "We are thrilled, and have no regrets about going abroad for such a wonderful outcome."

Mrs Chenery - whose sons Adam, Daniel, Paul and David are aged between three
and 10 - went to Valencia, Spain, in March for the £6,000 sex selection treatment.

Such treatment is outlawed in the UK unless the choice is made to protect the unborn child from sex-linked genetic disease.
Earlier this year, when she was told the treatment had been successful, Mrs
Chenery said she was "over the moon".
"I have wanted a daughter for as long as I can remember," she said.
It was the couple's second attempt at gender selection after earlier treatment
