An emotional Sylvia, clearly on the verge of tears as she spoke, said: “Brooke, I know from my personal experience with IVF that so much goes into having a successful embryo.”

“The silver lining in having unused embryos is that you’ve had your miracles. You’ve had your babies. So that’s the beautiful part of it,” she added, still teary.
At the end of the segment, David Campbell looked over to his co-host to check in, giving her a supporting pat on the hand.

“It is every emotion at its extreme and all mixed in together. It is an extreme and deep joy, it is rational anxiety,” she said, adding: “But mostly just joy and wonder, and in awe of this beautiful little boy.”
Peter and Sylvia met and fell in love while co-hosting Today’s Weekend Summer Series in 2013.
Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald of their early romance back in 2016, Sylvia said: “I think it was pretty obvious, certainly was to everyone around me – my mum and my sister, in particular, knew that there was something there.
