The new post comes after Ella hit back at trolls claiming she is not the father of her child after she shared cute photos of her baby last month.
The model took to Instagram to post pictures of herself in a gray dress hugging her blossoming baby bump as she slammed internet trolls for their hateful comments about her pregnancy.
In a lengthy caption, Ella said she and her ex-boxer friend often see comments saying their baby isn’t theirs because it’s “biologically impossible”.
Ella hit back at ‘cruel’ trolls, asking why people can’t be happy knowing their child will be loved, rather than asking them about IVF and sperm donation.
The couple, who had been together for four years, conceived after a fourth round of IVF, starting infertility treatment in 2019.
In her Instagram post, Ella said she knew she and Nicole couldn’t have had a baby without medical intervention, but said people’s harsh comments were part of the stigma surrounding IVF.
She wrote: “Seeing a lot of comments about this not being ‘our’ baby because it’s ‘biologically’ impossible and we’re not parents…we all know we couldn’t have done it without medical intervention trust me i know
“But it makes me think that this is why there is such a problem around IVF and fertility, because people are so cruel. Just because the baby isn’t yours biologically and wasn’t created “naturally” doesn’t mean it’s not your baby!
“Why can’t people be happy knowing that the child will be loved and wanted.”
Ella also took offense to people saying she and Ella give her a “hard time” when there are fathers who don’t “stick around to do the work” as parents, comparing absent fathers to sperm donors.
“Too many children come into this world with so-called parents who are nothing more than donors…not parents. But is it difficult for us?! she said.
“It’s as much of a donor as all the men who make babies instead of sticking around to do the work! You guys really need to learn the difference.”
