Ilona - who works for technology giant Apple - and her partner told friends and family that they intended to raise the child with "truth and love".

They shared at the time: "Our intention is to raise our child in a co-creative environment where truth and love are foremost... We look forward to embracing the sacred responsibility of parenthood as well as learning from this spirit."
