SAS Australia's Jana Pittman welcomes twins a little earlier than expected
SAS Australia star and former Olympian Jana Pittman is now a mum of six after welcoming twins.
The 38-year-old’s babies were delivered a little earlier than expected, making their appearance on Tuesday, March 22, at 35 weeks, according to New Idea.
Although they weren’t due until around Easter, the magazine reports that everyone is healthy and well.

Jana is already mum to one-year-old Charlie, who she shares with her husband Paul Gatward, four-year-old Jemima and six-year-old Emily, who she conceived via sperm donation, and 14-year-old Cornelis, who she had with her former husband, Chris Rawlinson.
Earlier this week she shared a gorgeous photo of her three eldest kids smiling with their hands on her growing belly, and another of little Charlie giving her bump a cuddle in the bath.
Speaking to New Idea at the end of last year, the champion hurdler turned doctor said she was struggling to wrap her head around the logistics of having six kids in one household.
“I don’t know how we are going to cope,” she said, “How will we all fit into my car?”
But potential transporting issues aside, Jana said both she and her husband Paul were thrilled at the news.
“I’m stoked because I love the idea of having a beautiful, big family for the rest of my life,” she said.
Jana and her husband Paul fell pregnant after her stint on the brutal reality TV show SAS Australia, where she managed to be the last female contestant standing.
She was praised by fans of the show for being honest and open, and many were outraged when she didn’t make it through to the finale.
