Pregnant Caprice has spoken of her joy at expecting two "miracle" babies just one month apart. The mum-to-be has revealed that she and partner Ty Comfort are set to welcome two children — one via a surrogate mother, expected four weeks before her own due date.
The lingerie designer has said the couple turned to a surrogate mother to carry their child, after doctors warned her she was unlikely to conceive naturally. But after learning that the American woman acting as their gestational surrogate was pregnant with their child, Caprice found out she had conceived just one month later.

"We are incredibly delighted," the emotional star told the Sun. "I have always wanted a family but I didn't find the right person I could see myself spending the rest of my life with until two years ago.
"Our gestational carrier is part of my family now and I'm forever grateful for the kindness and selflessness she has shown us taking such good care of our beautiful little baby."
She continued, "Like every career woman I worked so hard at being successful I left it a little late.
"But then to fall pregnant after our gestational carrier did was a miracle. My mum is so excited she has already bought enough baby clothes to fill a country."
Caprice, 41, and American millionaire Ty, 46, started dating in June 2011 after being introduced by friends. Both babies will be born in America but raised in the couple's home in Notting Hill, west London.
The parents-to-be are currently renovating their house ready for the new arrivals, which are due to arrive in August and September.
"We have found out the sex of both babies, but we're keeping it to ourselves for now," Caprice added.
