Former Love Island contestant, Malin Andersson, took to Instagram yesterday to share a tribute to her late baby daughter, Consy.
The 26-year-old reality star welcomed the tot seven weeks early in December 2018, but Consy tragically passed away at just four weeks old due to complications.
In honour of Baby Loss Awareness Week, which is set to begin on Wednesday, Malin uploaded a heartbreaking photo of her daughter during her time in hospital, beside the honest message, ‘I think about you and how you would be like every day. I love you baby girl. My heart hurts. Baby loss awareness week 9th-15th October. Let’s raise awareness ❤️’.
Of course, dozens of Malin’s followers made sure to pen sweet messages of support beneath the heartfelt upload.
‘Sending you so much love and healing thoughts Malin, you’re so strong 💕💕,’ one wrote.
While a second shared her own experience of losing a child, ‘I lost my precious little girl in August at 10 days old. There’s not a second that goes by where I don’t think of her x💗.’
Malin opened up about Consy’s death earlier this year, admitting that all she could ask was “why me?” when the awful moment came.
She said, “I played with her hands and feet while she was in the incubator, but I couldn’t hold her. I also got involved in nappy changes and was expressing [breast milk] so that she could have my milk.
“She was 4lb 8oz, so too small for surgery. All I could do was hope for a miracle.”
Speaking bravely to OK! magazine, she continued, “We went to see her body in the morgue and she looked so peaceful but I still couldn’t hold her. I’d carried a baby for seven months and then nothing.
“I felt empty, I have a scar where my baby has been taken out of me but there is no baby. I am a mum without a baby. I couldn’t stop thinking, why me?”
