'A good news story': Rosanna Davison's surrogate arrives safely in Ireland

"She gave us the greatest gift of all and now it was our turn to help her."

When the Russian invasion of Ukraine first began many Irish people offered their homes to Ukrainian refugees, among them Former Miss World Rosanna Davison.

Davison revealed back in March that she was in contact with the surrogate of her child and was trying to get her safely to Ireland.

Today, after a lot of ups and downs, Davison posted on social media to say that Anastasiia has touched down in Ireland.

Posting a photo at Dublin Airport this evening Davison wrote that there has finally been a happy ending after weeks of trying to help her surrogate get to 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.

@wesquirke and I first met this incredibly brave, kind woman in Kyiv 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 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 too!

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."
