“I’ve invited our Ukraine surrogate to come to Ireland to live with us,” she said when she shared a news article titled ‘Irish families hoping to bring Ukrainian surrogate mothers to Ireland’ to her Instagram story.

Rosanna has been in touch with her surrogate often since the Russian invasion began.

“I've been in touch today with our lovely surrogate who is also praying for peace and hoping to stay safe with her family,” she said previously.

"Sending so much love to the people of Ukraine and everyone affected by this.”

The mother of three, who has been a vocal supporter of Ukraine said she was holding her children close as families continued to be displaced amid Russian’s invasion.

She has also vowed to make a donation of baby goods.

“Sorting through piles of baby stuff, unsurprisingly we have quite a lot of stuff at home. Just for supplies to drop off to be sent to Ukraine tomorrow.”

“Things like nappies, these I’d forgotten we had that are too small for them, lots of cotton wool, hygiene supplies, loads of blankets, bottle warmers, loads and loads of bottles that were never used as well.”

“Gave them all even more cuddles than normal today after reading about some of the horrors happening to innocent families in Ukraine. Unbearable sadness.”

After welcoming Sophia in November 2019, Rosanna went on to carry her twin sons Hugo and Oscar who were born in November 2020.

She previously revealed to Sunday World the incredible shame she felt for her miscarriages.

“When it happened back a few years ago, I went through all the emotions of feeling ashamed, and embarrassed, and that my body was dysfunctional and broken and I was maybe less of a woman because I couldn't have a baby, and I was looking at my friends who were able to have healthy full-term normal pregnancies,” she said.

"So I had to do a lot of work on myself to make peace with the idea that I was the girl who couldn't have a baby, and that I needed help, I needed a surrogate and I needed medical science to help me.”
