Sue, meanwhile, revealed that she had been in labour for 26 hours.
“And then there were 4! Welcome to the world my beautiful,” she wrote on Sunday.
“Alexa-Rose Duminy.. Mom’s heart just doubled in size with all this new love, dad’s chest expanded twice from all the proudness and Isabella already got a very tight grip around your hand so you are basically stuck with your new BFF for life..”
She thanked husband Duminy and further added, “Thanks my love @jpduminy for standing next to me every minute of the 26 hours in labour I hope you can still manage to catch a ball after all those contraction-hand-grasps.. #ThankYouLordForOurBlessings”
She concluded by thanking everyone for their wishes. “And thanks to everyone for the beautiful messages, each one is greatly appreciated!”
