“Remembering all of the babies who gained their wings far too soon,” she wrote online, in view of her 445,000 followers.
“Today is a day to remember our children, celebrate the time they were here, whether they were born or not, give thanks to those who helped us through the darkest times of our lives and help to raise awareness and break the silence of baby loss,” she went on to say.
“I am a mother without her child,” her heartbreaking post continued.
Kym, who also shares daughter Polly with ex Jamie and is mum to grown-up children David and Emilie from an earlier relationship, said she wasn’t always able to talk openly about her experience at the time.
