The 23-year-old was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome meaning she had no vaginal canal, a malformed uterus and no cervix. Surgeons created a 'man-made' vagina using skin taken from her bottom - allowing her to have sex and lead a normal life.

And now Devan and her husband Trent, from Georgia, USA, are hoping to start a family with the help of a surrogate.
