A Thai surrogate mother left with a Down’s Syndrome baby abandoned by his Australian biological parents said Tuesday she would like the baby's healthy twin returned after reports that the father is a convicted paedophile. 

Pattaramon Chanbua, a 21-year-old food vendor who has two young children of her own, has been bringing up baby boy Gammy as her own since he was born in December. She said the father rejected Gammy, while taking his healthy twin sister home to Western Australia.

Ms Pattaramon said she would welcome the baby sister of Gammy back if she is mistreated by the parents in Australia, following reports that the biological father was convicted of paedophile charges in 1998.
