Ellia is heartwarmingly carrying on their mother's legacy, recently welcoming a baby into the world with their partner, Vanessa 'Ness'.
In February 2022, the Olympic champion took to their Instagram to delight in the arrival of their first child, a baby girl.
"Welcome to the world Waitui Yolanta Green-Roberts," Ellia wrote on Instagram. "You are the greatest gift that we could ever ask for and you have my whole heart. Every time I look at you I cry because I see our parents up in heaven in your eyes and I see the strength you carry in your heart.
"I promise you will protect you and love you with all I have until the end of time and into the next life wherever you go my beautiful daughter… ♥️”
Ellia and their partner Vanessa first announced they were expecting in September 2021, uploading adorable footage of the moment they found out Ness was pregnant (see above).
“Not too long ago I came from training to find out that the biggest blessing is about to come into our life. I have no doubt that this precious gift has been guided to us from our parents up above whose spirits are protecting our little darling already," the reality star wrote on Instagram.
"@nessaturnbullroberts Watching you grow into motherhood is the most beautiful thing to witness and I am already so proud to be parents to our baby.”
The partnership between Ellia and Vanessa is beautiful to witness, even if just through social media. From their overt love for one another, to their strength and passion for advocating against racism.
Ellia has gushed about their partner on multiple occasions, saying Ness “inspires (them) every day".
“I admire the way she stands up for the rights of her people, her culture, her ancestors, and her future children. I love her dearly,” Ellia told Marie Claire.
The SAS recruit reinforced their love for Ness to the Daily Telegraph, explaining that she motivates them to “be a better person”.
