‘DONNA Air and her zoo-owner boyfriend Damian Aspinall intend to place baby daughter Freya in the care of a gorilla to introduce her to the animals.

She will be put into the gorilla enclosure at Howletts Zoo near Canterbury, Kent, where she will be carried off by the female of the group.

‘It is a ritual,” says Aspinall. “I’ll probably give her to the dominant female who will take her off and introduce her to the others.’

The multi-millionaire said he had no qualms about his actions, saying that his two other daughters, Clary, 11, and Tansy, 14, had also been introduced to the gorillas at the zoo in the same way.

‘Why would I not trust them? I know them, I grew up with them, they are my friends,’ he says.’
