Amie Rohan described her now ex-husband Gary as ‘her rock’ before they split in 2020
On April 12, 2018, the former couple – who were childhood sweethearts – tragically lost their daughter Willow the day she was born.
Her twin Bella survived after spending three weeks in an intensive care unit.
Amie Rohan described her now estranged husband as her ‘rock’ at the time.
“Gary was my rock at the time and the support network got us through it,” she said.
Gary Rohan and his ex-wife Amie broke up last July – he then reportedly moved on with a Geelong employee
The former couple share two daughters – Bella (2) and Sadie (1) – they also lost Sadie’s twin brother Willow the day she was born.
“We got hit hard with Willow and had to be strong for Bella. But we have met families who were inside [ICU] for months. ‘
Mrs. Rohan was only 12 weeks of her first pregnancy when she first learned that one of her babies was not going to survive.
The baby was diagnosed with anencephaly, a congenital condition in which much of the baby’s brain does not develop.
She said her experience of spending three weeks in the ICU was “nothing” compared to the struggles of other families.
“It made me realize that someone is always in a worse position,” she said.
The alleged breakdown of the marriage last July came just months after their daughter Sadie Rose was born in March.
Amie shared an Instagram post that read, ‘What motherhood taught me is that I can’t be everything to everyone.
“I’m slowly learning to outsource where I can and rely more on others to do the things I just can’t keep up with, but it’s all such a learning process,” she added.
Add to that that sadness, separation anxiety, and a hint of mental health issues and, frankly, it’s just been really damn hard! But baby steps. ‘
Last November, Ms. Rohan shared a cryptic post about finding strength through ‘tough days’ after it was rumored that her AFL star had ex-moved with the Geelong Cats staffer.
She posted a message from poet Dhiman about overcoming obstacles and not giving up.
The Rohan’s – Amie and Gary – were childhood sweethearts before going their separate ways in 2020
It said, “This year you learned to trust yourself. You have seen your strength increase during your most difficult days. ‘
‘You’ve been hurt and there were days when you fell apart, but you held on to yourself, you didn’t give up on your heart.
“And despite all the obstacles in your path, you have come this far.”
Ms. Rohan also revealed to Harper’s Bazaar magazine in October 2018 that the couple had made the decision to fully carry both babies.
‘We sat down and said’ this journey has been written for us. Let’s get on with it, ” she told the publication.
“We had about five hours with Willow before she died. In those five hours I learned so much about life and how precious it is. ‘
