      Dear Kelly,

      I have just watched this programme with my parents, Warren and Jenny, and for the first time in 17 years I have heard the whole story. I am glad to say I am alive and well along with my twin sister due to the fertility treatment my parents underwent. I am forever grateful for the pure tenacity of my parents, never willing to give up and here I am, 17 years of age and loving life.

      Thank you for caring about us,

      Theo Silk

    I stumbled upon “Babies at 50” on YouTube last night and, after watching it, I immediately wanted to know if Jenny and Warren were able to have the family they so badly wanted. I’m just overjoyed to read here that they went on to have twins. What a wonderful outcome for such a lovely couple.

    Warren and Jenny seemed like they would make the most wonderful parents. I’m absolutely delighted for you all.
    And you now have beautiful twins who are nearly grown up themselves. Wow!!
    I am 42 and seven weeks pregnant with baby number 3.
    My son is 18 and my daughter is 14…
    Bit of an age gap but we couldn’t be happier!!
    Wishing you all lots of love and happiness in life.
    Dreams really do come true!!

    I have only just watched Babies at 50. While watching Warren and Jenny I had my fingers firmly crossed even though I knew this was filmed so many years ago. I had to go straight online at nearly midnight to see if I could find out how things worked out for these guys. I couldn’t be more happy that things worked out so well. Belated congratulations guys x
