One wrote: 'Yes I’m always broody find myself with an ache looking at babies. My youngest has just turned ten and I’m too old now 50 recently ahhh! How did that happen 😲does the broody feeling ever leave us mummy’s? X'

While another added: 'I’m 10 weeks with number 5 I love being pregnant every time I go shopping I’m in the baby aisle lol , I need to control my emotions now though or I’d be the next 21 kids and counting I think.'

But others we happy to leave their baby-making days behind.

One wrote: 'Nope! My kids are 20 and 16 and have no desire to do it all over again. It will be grandbabies for me next. I'm content being an aunty to my sister's 5 yr old and 1 month kids are the best contraceptive out there 😏'

While a second added: 'My children are 25,22,9 & 6..I can safely say my 6 year old has finally stopped my broodiness 😂 love babies but just other people’s 😊'

Summing up this sentiment another wrote: 'Now I have 5 teenage girls my broodiness seems to have diminished somewhat... can’t think why???👀@nadiasawalhaandfamily'

As well as daughter Kikki Nadia shares daughter Maddy, 16, with her husband Mark Adderley.

Just weeks ago the presenter and food author got fans excited by sharing another 'bump' photo  on Instagram.

But rather than announcing that her family of four would soon become a family of five, Nadia's snap was actually just the result of a little over-indulgence during the festive season!
