In another post she said: “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.”

The 37-year-old previously shared her worry for her Ukrainian surrogate.

She welcomed her first daughter Sophia via gestational surrogate in 2019.

Davison travelled to the Ukraine with husband Wes Quirke to find a surrogate after 14 devastating miscarriages.

Taking to Instagram, the model shared a picture of herself in Kyiv during her time in Ukraine.
