Rosanna Davison has always been fantastically honest about her fertility journey. The former Miss World has frequently been interviewed on the subject and has spoken about how difficult that time was.

Now Rosanna and her husband Wes are parents to a gorgeous baby girl, Sophia. The couple welcomed baby Sophia via surrogacy last November.

Rosanna and Wes first began trying for a baby in 2015, but sadly she endured multiple miscarriages – 14 to be exact.

“People just assume I have this perfect life,” she told VIP Magazine.

“I’ve so much compassion and empathy for people going through fertility issues because it does take its toll, physically and emotionally.”

In a recent interview on Sile Seoige’s podcast, Ready To Be Real, Rosanna spoke about how her husband, Wes coped with it all and that she doesn’t think he got enough support.

“I think the issue as well of looking at the male side is a big one because we do focus so much on the female side of fertility, both from a medical perspective but also from an emotional perspective.”

“But of course these were Wes’ babies as well we were losing. He was very strong and supportive throughout, I couldn’t have gotten through it without him, he was brilliant.”

“But the focus was very much on how was I feeling, how was I doing but people didn’t ask him enough about how he was doing.”


The subject of male mental health has been discussed a lot in recent years, as men are less likely to speak about their feelings than women.

“I think unfortunately he probably did bottle it up a little bit too much and I knew how desperate he was to have a baby and he was watching his friends have babies as well all around him.”

“It’s just as tough for the partner having to go through that and to be the one to support somebody going through miscarriages.

“To be the strong one really, to hold everything together but also feeling devastated.”

“I think as well, as couple you’re obviously going through it together but I think as individuals you need to process it yourselves in your own individual way and figure out how to get through that time.”

This is a subject that needs to be spoken about more and we’re so glad that Rosanna is shedding light on the fact that men need support in these matters too.
