Rosanna Davison has revealed the fantastic news that her surrogate has arrived safely in Ireland. Since war first broke out in Ukraine almost two months ago the Irish model as been in touch with her surrogate, Anastasia and trying to get her to safety.
Yesterday, she shared a snap from the airport as Anastasia arrived in Ireland alongside her family and her dog. Captioning the emotional moment Rosanna said; “A good news story. On April 25th, after a long and traumatic journey out of Ukraine, my daughter’s gestational surrogate @anastasiia.berezan arrived safely into Ireland with her family.”
Continuing, she spoke about when they first met and that Anastasia was Rosanna and Wes’ gestational surrogate for their daughter Sophia; “At the time, we couldn’t even find the words to express our gratitude for giving us our much longed-for baby, so when the war began back in February, we offered her a safe home in Ireland. She gave us the greatest gift of all and now it was our turn to help her.”
This is something Rosanna has been working towards for some time now and she shared that she has been blown away by the generosity and willingness to help from friends and family.
“It took two months to finally escape Kherson City in the south of Ukraine and it was a huge logistical challenge to get them from Poland to Germany and then to Ireland with their husky! But we did it with the help of some very generous, compassionate people, including my wonderful parents. And lots of my friends have been so generous with their time and support – you know who you are and I can’t thank you enough!”
She added; “They’ve been settling into their new home in Ireland and finding their way around too. There’s been so much support in the community for Ukrainian families in Ireland, and they really appreciate all of the kindness. Irish people are truly amazing.”
Speaking to the Irish Mirror last month the influencer shared her concern for Anastasia and her family; “I’ve been demented and sick with worry, seeing the situation getting worse. I feel very protective of her, I’ve invited her to come live with us.”
“I said to her that we will give her a place to live with her daughter that’s safe. We’ll look after her, and she can see Sophia again. I’ve been messaging her constantly checking if she’s safe and if her building been bombed. She said there’s shooting going on all around her, she can hear bombs going off.”
We are wishing Anastasia and her family a warm welcome to Ireland!
