Rosanna Davison Husband
DWTS contestant Rosanna Davison is married to Wesley Quirke. On June 1, 2014, the high-profile pair got married at the Atzaro hotel and Spa in Ibiza in a ceremony set in the orange groves and beside a pool strewn with flower petals and floating candles.
Speaking about her big day, she said: “We always knew that when we got married, we wanted to do it somewhere sunny. When we attended my friend’s wedding, we both said how much we loved it.”
Rosanna Davison Children
Rosanna Davison is a mother to three children; daughter Sophia and twin boys Hugo and Oscar. The model had previously gone through 15 miscarriages before having her daughter Sophia by surrogate. She has been vocal about her surrogacy journey. Sophia was only months old when Rosanna fell pregnant naturally.
The twins’ birthday is November 18 and World Prematurity Day, November 17, is the very day Rosanna went into hospital at 35 weeks.
According to RollerCoaster, the model was expecting to go into hospital the following week to have an elective Caesarean section but during a final scan, doctors decided it was time for the twins to be born. At 35 weeks, the boys were premature and so needed some special care.
“They spent a week in the neonatal unit at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street,’ Rosanna told RollerCoaster. “Although they were a decent enough weight — Hugo was 4lbs 7oz while Oscar was 5lbs 5oz so they weren’t teeny-tiny.
“They spent the week there and the nurses are actually angels — the team are incredible and they offer all the reassurance and advice you could possibly need as parents.”

“You forget who you used to be when you become a mum… your children take over your life, your world and your thoughts and I’m slowly starting to remember the person I used to be! I’m doing this show for my kids as well, I want them to be really proud,” she added.

She told the Sunday Independent: “I’ve stretched out about half-an-inch through pilates – I was 5ft 9 and now I am 5ft 9-and-a-half inches.
“It’s a known effect from practising it regularly. Pilates helps to elongate and lengthen muscles, improves posture and plumps up the cushioning discs of our spine.”
Rosanna Davison Net Worth
Rosanna Davison’s net worth is estimated to be €5 million. Since winning the Miss World beauty competition in 2003, Rosanna has worked internationally as a model and brand ambassador for numerous Irish and global companies, from Volkswagen Germany to Playboy America.
Rosanna Davison was taught value of money by her singer dad Chris de Burgh and her mother Diana. According to the Irish Independent, De Burgh and his wife Diana have an estimated net worth of €30 million and live in a large house in the Wicklow mountains.
“My parents put money into our education,” said model Rosanna. “A nice home and holidays. I was not overindulged as a child, so I would say that I was not privileged but comfortable. I never want to rely on anyone for money, I value financial independence.”
She added that her mother Diana is very prudent. “She grew up in a family of five so they lived a very non-materialistic lifestyle.” Her father Chris, she continued, had no money for years.
“He used to busk for money a long time ago, so both my parents appreciate the value of hard work, which they’ve passed on to me and my brothers Hubie and Michael.”
