Alessandara de Rossi shared that she actually offered to be the surrogate of her sister Assunta back when the latter was having difficulties having a child.  

“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 said in an interview with Toni Gonzaga in I Feel U on Sunday, February 21. 

Assunta did not take Alessandra's offer though. 


“Willing na akong gawin 'yun para sa kanya ng walang bayad. Willing ako pero tinawanan lang niya ako. So hindi ko alam kung kinonsider ba niya in her head,” Alessandra relayed. 

 

 

On Tuesday, February 23, Assunta clarified on Twitter that Assunta was just joking and surrogacy in the Philippines is not yet permitted.

"While it’s a touching gesture, joke lang po yan. 
1. Surrogacy is not yet allowed in the PH
2. A surrogate/gestational carrier should have at least 2 kids of her own before carrying another person’s
3. Unfair naman kung 1st pregnancy mo, hindi pala para sayo," Assunta posted on her Twitter page. 

 

 

Assunta gave birth to her first child in October 2020 after 19 years of trying to get pregnant.

According to the actress, being a first-time mom is no easy task.

 

 

“Since day one, sleep deprived na talaga ako. Nasasanay din pero there are times na ang hirap. You take it one day at a time talaga kasi if today okay ka, hindi guaranteed na okay ka rin tomorrow," she said in I Feel U. 

 

 

Amid the challenges, she said that she is cherishing every moment of it. 

“I cherish nga the moments kasi darating sa point na hindi ka na niya kailangan. It goes by so fast. Wala nang take two ito,” she stated.
