Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news, Toni said: “Writing a book was honestly never on my radar, but a couple of years ago I was asked to talk about my experience with surrogacy and I thought it was something that could be really useful (there was only one Kiwi story for us to use as reference when we had Lachie).
“I quickly realised that writing about our surrogacy journey in isolation was impossible – it had to include why we needed to use a surrogate (my auto-immune disease, and ongoing battle to keep good health), and why we were so motivated to have a big family (the death of my three siblings).

She continued: “My mum Wendy encouraged me to talk about our family’s grief as she thought it would be cathartic for me, and I hope it has been for Mum and Dad too. They have opened up about their harrowing experience of losing three children. Many things they shared with me I didn’t know before.
“And with the blessing and help of Sophie Braggins we’ve gone into detail about the surrogacy process, and the emotional rollercoaster that goes with it.”
