“When I spoke to the agencies about her Down’s syndrome diagnosis, no one even batted an eyelid,” Julie told Daily Mail. “She absolutely loved it. She follows direction very well and she has so much fun in front of the cameras.”

“I was assessed as being at higher risk of having a baby with Down’s Syndrome when I was pregnant and could have had the diagnostic test to find out but I didn’t want it because it just wasn’t an issue.”

“We have friends whose children have been diagnosed with Down’s syndrome and have had nothing but positive experiences of children with the diagnosis.”
