And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true 💫 Today, November 21st 2019 at 11.57am, our beautiful and healthy daughter Sophia Rose Quirke arrived safely into the world weighing 6lbs8oz… she’s absolutely perfect 🙏🏼 We’re completely overwhelmed with love and gratitude for our incredible gestational surrogate, who has given us the greatest gift of all and made our family dream a reality 💗#oursurrogacyjourney
Rosanna announced the news of the pregnancy earlier this year, revealing that they had turned to surrogacy after years of struggling to conceive.
“As our families and close friends know, this has been a long and very tough journey for us, sadly with multiple miscarriages along the way,” she wrote.
“We’ve dreamed of being parents for many years and I would have loved to carry my own baby, but for reasons unknown… I’ve been unable to sustain any of my pregnancies. Following medical advice, gestational surrogacy abroad became our only viable option for a biological child and we’re so thankful for the wonders of modern medicine and reproductive science.”
“I know too well that pregnancy loss and fertility struggles can be a profoundly lonely, frightening, devastating experience for both women and men,” she continued. “If you’re going through this, I send you all of my love and support.”
Congratulations to Rosanna, Wes, and little Sophia Rose!
