- Alessandra de Rossi revealed she offered to be Assunta’s surrogate
- However, Assunta merely laughed off her suggestion
- Alessandra admitted she got emotional when she saw the photo of Assunta carrying her newborn on her arms
Alessandra de Rossi admitted that she earlier offered to be a surrogate for her sister Assunta so she could have a child.
In an episode of “I Feel U” via ABS-CBN’s YouTube channel, Alessandra revealed that she offered to carry in her own womb the baby of her sister after Assunta’s attempt to do an in vitro fertilization failed.
“Nung nagpa-IVF siya tapos hindi nag-work, may dalawa pa siyang eggs na natitira. Tapos sabi niya, ‘Ayaw ko na siya pagdaanan. Ayaw ko na pagdaanan y’ung feeling.’ Sabi ko, ‘Gusto mo ba ako ang magdala? Wala din naman akong direksyon sa buhay,’” Alessandra stated.
She went on to share that her sister merely laughed off her suggestion. Alessandra recalled: “Willing na akong gawin ‘yun para sa kanya nang walang bayad. Willing ako pero tinawanan lang niya ako. So hindi ko alam kung kinonsider ba niya in her head.”
Alessandra also revealed that she was one of the first few people who knew that Assunta was pregnant. Even with the excitement, they agreed to keep everything a secret for a while. When her sister finally gave birth, Alessandra shared she was emotional upon seeing Assunta with her newborn.
“Umiyak ako nung pinadala sa akin ‘yung photo na kakalabas lang niya ng delivery room tapos hawak ‘yung baby. Totoo na ba ito? Totoo na nga! Send to all talaga. Doon ako naging emotional,” she said.
Assunta and her husband Jules Ledesma welcomed their first baby named Giuilia Fiorentina Alessandra in October 2020 after 19 years of trying to have their own offspring.
