Malin Andersson has given birth to her daughter seven weeks early after suffering “complications”, as she reveals she’s named her tot Consy.
The former ‘Love Island’ contestant took to Instagram on Tuesday (01.01.19) to reveal she had given birth to her first child – a girl, whom she has named Consy – with boyfriend Tom Kemp on December 23, after suffering “complications” which caused her to go into labour seven weeks early.
Posting a picture of her tot in hospital, Malin wrote:
“Happy New Year..Tom and I are so happy to let you all know that our baby girl CONSY arrived in this world 23rd December 2018, seven weeks early. She is so beautiful, we are totally in love with her and feel so blessed that she is here but unfortunately due to complications, she is currently being cared for at Great Ormond Street – we have received a number of messages over the past week and there has been a lot of speculation and so we wanted to share our news with you so you could hear from us first hand. We are so thankful for the amazing care she is receiving here and promise to update you on her progress but for the time being we hope you can all respect our privacy. We can’t wait to share her with you all soon. Love, Ma & Tom x (sic)”
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old reality star previously revealed her pregnancy was a total surprise, after having tragically lost her mother in November 2017.
“I am feeling quite shocked about being pregnant to be honest. It hasn’t sunk in yet. My mum passed away in November and within the same year I will be bringing a new life into the world.”
Malin met Tom just before her mother passed away, but didn’t want to jump into a romance with him whilst she was grieving.
“I met him a week before my mum died weirdly. We stayed in touch as I didn’t want to date around that time but he pursued me.”
