[NEEDS INPUT] [S] Father Winter's Child Does Not Place From Gallery

[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All content thru StrangerVille and latest patch applied
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a child with Father Winter that shows the trait Father Winter's Baby. Share the household to the gallery and place in another save.
What happens when the bug occurs? Father Winter's Baby in the original save where they are born is fine. When the same Sim is saved then downloaded from the gallery the Sim with Father Winter's Baby (FWB) trait will vanish once placed in game. That Sim is nowhere in the save.
What do you expect to see? Sim with Father Winter's Baby.trait to be shared to gallery and placed in another save without vanishing.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

As this may be rare and is related to specific circumstances (Clement Frost / Father Winter fathers a child) I am providing links to my Sim with that trait.
Subject: Brandene Boldfigure #EQCreations #FatherWinter #Boldfigure
First upload after birthday from toddler to child
HeirsSpares Boldfigure (Uploaded just after birthday from Teen to YA)
Household HeirsSpares Boldfigure YA with a twin (Beleena) created in CAS using the genetics generator in game.
Twin Boldfigure (Mom Berta  and Brandene FWB were played in game, Beleena is new with zero skills etc)
Twin Boldfigure & Brandene Boldfigure households were tested in brand new saves and appeared to be intact.
When any of the above households were added to an existing save Brandene (FWB) vanished and was not anywhere in the world.

The whole idea was to be able to place her in other existing saves t play as a neighbor/friend/etc.

"Twin" (Left) and Father Winters Baby (Right) placed in a new save.

Household on the right was placed in existing save and Brandene vanished when I went to live mode. (I was playing as another Sim)
Household on the right was merged with this household in the same save for testing purposes.
Again Brandene vanished when I went to live mode.
