Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, Danijela and Nils are both former professional ice hockey players who have competed all over the world in competitions. Following their retirement from elite sport, they decided they wanted to build a family together, however after years of trying to conceive naturally, Danijela and Nils tried IVF treatment to fall pregnant. After multiple IVF treatments they were successful and four years after they initially started trying for a baby, Danijela gave birth to their daughter, Ella.
To support other potential parents on their family building journeys, Danijela and Nils have also donated eggs and sperm. They want donation to become more common, so that other people can build families too.
