Rosanna Davison welcomes her former Ukrainian surrogate to Ireland

Submitted to Celebrity Spotlight

Former Miss World Rosanna Davison contacted Anastasiia Berezan, with whom she and husband Wes Quirke had her first child, Sophia (2), via gestational surrogacy in November 2019, when the Russian invasion first began in Ukraine. After months of being trapped in her home country, Davison posted that her former surrogate had recently arrived in Ireland.

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 ❤️ Their bravery and strength is unbelievable.

@wesquirke and I first met this incredibly kind woman in Kyiv in 2019 just before she gave birth to our little girl, 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. 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!

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 ❤️
