The published author chose to use a surrogate mother for her second pregnancy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer the day before giving birth to Annabelle in 2011.

She and her husband Marcus first met Rachel, from Wisconsin, in 2014 and the already mother-of-three agreed to carry her child for no financial gain.
Newborn Elyssa is something Sally feels she could never truly repay the American woman for.
'How do you even repay someone, like a bottle of perfume just doesn't cut it. The gift, I mean, it is priceless,' she gushed during an interview with Sunday Night.
'How amazing that there are people like Rachel in this world, like a woman from the other side of the world who I don't even know who would do this for me?'
