Rosanna Davison has told followers that she has been in touch with her Ukrainian surrogate amid Russia’s invasion of the country. The Irish model and nutritionist  spent a lot of time in Kiev in 2019 while her daughter Sophia was being carried by her surrogate, who was based there.

Taking to Instagram stories today Rosanna shared her support for Ukraine writing, “Feeling completely shocked & devastated today at the situation in Ukraine. We got to know beautiful Kiev very well in 2019, we made friends there & will always have a link to it as it’s Sophia’s country of birth.”

“Kiev is an incredibly interesting city, rich in culture, history & diversity with wonderful people. I’ve been in touch today with our lovely surrogate who is also praying for peace & hoping to stay safe with her family sending so much love to the people of Ukraine & everyone affected by this. #ISTANDWITHUKRAINE”

Rosanna recently shared a throwback to when herself and her husband Wes first arrived in Kiev on their surrogacy journey; “This day three years ago in Kiev, it was the day before my surrogacy egg retrieval procedure….” she wrote.

In the caption of the post she continued to share her gratitude the positive outcome she had as well as sharing support to those impacted by the current conflict both at home and in Ukraine; “Thoughts are with the parents through surrogacy, the surrogate mothers, their families and all affected by the current situation in Ukraine.”

For Rosanna and her husband Wes their journey to parenthood was a complicated one. After suffering 15 devastating miscarriages the couple opted for surrogacy which is how they welcomed their first chid, Sophia.

However, the couple later went on to have twin boys in 2020 and the former Miss World recently shared that it was after suffering her 15th loss that she fell pregnant with the twins.

“I was just shocked, I mean to go from the girl who couldn’t have a baby, who needed to rely on a surrogate, to being pregnant with twins… it was just the most extraordinary feeling.”

Since then Rosanna has penned a book about her experience which goes into more detail what she went through.

Speaking about writing the book she said; “My aim in writing this book about our struggles with fertility, from being told I wouldn’t be able to carry my own baby, to the long & challenging surrogacy journey we undertook to have Sophia, followed by the joy of welcoming naturally conceived identical twins less than a year later, is to help normalise the conversation about infertility & pregnancy loss & to examine the stigma & silence that can still surround it.”

“I feel that sharing my story about the frustration & loneliness we experienced will help to contribute to the growing awareness of miscarriage, an experience sadly shared by so many.”

Continuing she said; “I also write about their birth, my C-section recovery, breastfeeding, maternal mental health, life as a working mum & how we’ve adapted to the chaos at home with 3 under 2!”
