LOVE Island star Malin Andersson has shared an emotional farewell to her baby daughter, who died at just four weeks.
‘RIP my angel,’ wrote Malin, alongside a picture of little Consy, who was born seven weeks premature on December 23 and has been in intensive care at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Malin, 26, named her daughter after her mother Consy, who died of cancer in November 2017. In another post on Instagram she wrote: ‘Completely in love with you, and my Mum just wanted you to be with her.
‘Your time wasn’t ready yet. Mummy loves you. I stayed with you each day… you opened your eyes one last time for me and I saw those beautiful big brown eyes. I’m so sorry I couldn’t do any more. Go be with grandma Consy. My angel. Rest in peace Consy Gloria Emma Andersson-Kemp. 23/12/18-22/01/19.’
TV stars Katie Price and Nicola McLean were among celebrities who sent messages of condolence to Malin, who was in series two of the ITV2 show.
Price wrote on Instagram: ‘I’m genuinely sorry for your loss. No words I can say as I know how hard it is with a baby in intensive care.’
McLean, a former Celebrity Big Brother contestant, added: ‘I’m so truly sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you x.’
Stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands also sent a message of support on Twitter, saying: ‘We are so so sorry to hear baby Consy has died. We are always here to support you whenever you need us, best wishes, Sands.’
Malin, who had kept a vigil at the hospital with her partner Tom Kemp, posted several social media updates over the past month. On January 1, she asked for ‘prayers please’ for her ‘beautiful girl’.
In another tweet she said her daughter’s struggle was ‘the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through’.
