A LESBIAN couple have become the world’s first ever parents to share pregnancy of the same baby in BOTH their wombs.
Jasmine Francis-Smith, 28, and Donna Francis-Smith, 30, both carried the embryo of their 2-month-old son Otis after a treatment known as “shared motherhood”.
Army lance corporal Donna said: “We’re overwhelmed, to be honest, it’s blown up massively. It’s definitely brought us closer together emotionally.
“We’re a close couple anyway, but we both have a special bond with Otis as well, which was helped by the way we’ve done it.
“Jasmine said he’s going to be an astronaut, but he can be whatever he wants to be. We’ll always support him in whatever he wants to do.
“We’re just happy that it’s worked so well and the information is out there.
“It brings you closer together rather than feeling one has a bond more than the other.”

Dental nurse Jasmine, who was the one to give birth, said the couple were “equal in the whole process.”
Jasmine and Donna married in 2018 after meeting online and Otis was born in October this year.
More than 100 babies have been born to lesbian couples in Britain but this is the first pregnancy with both parents carrying an unborn child.
