‘I never thought I’d have six children, I don’t know how we are going to cope. How will we all fit into my car? I can see life is going to be a logistical nightmare.’
Jana fell pregnant with her husband Paul not long after SAS Australia wrapped filming.
Despite trying to hide her pregnancy for the first few weeks, Jana found it impossible to keep things a secret thanks to her extreme morning sickness.

Recalling the moment she was forced to tell her employers at the hospital about her pregnancy, Jana admitted she’d vomited mid-way through performing a caesarean.
Jana and businessman Paul welcomed their first child, a son named Charlie, in December last year.
Two of Jana’s children, daughters Emily, six, and Jemima, four, were born via IVF and through an anonymous sperm donor.
She also has a 14-year-old son, Cornelis, from her marriage to her first husband and former coach, Chris Rawlinson.
