Love Island’s Malin Andersson reveals she’s having a baby – two years after daughter’s death

Written by on 02/08/2021

Former Love Island contestant Malin Andersson is expecting another child – more than two years after the death of her one-month-old daughter Consy.

The reality TV personality’s baby girl died in January 2019 after being born seven weeks prematurely.

Andersson revealed in June she was in a relationship with someone she had known for four years, but until recently had remained only friends.

Sharing her news on social media, she said her “heart feels electric” and “this couldn’t feel any more right”.

She wrote: “My next chapter. My new beginning. My happy ending. My entire universe. All mine. I can’t describe to you all how I feel writing this.”

Andersson continued: “Everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I visualised. A solid partner in my life, who has been there in the background – witnessed my life over the past 4 years and has stuck by me as a friend.. and now a lover. This couldn’t feel any more right – and we’re now bringing a beautiful soul into this world.

“My heart feels electric writing this, my eyes tearing up.. because I can promise you all there was once upon a time I never thought I could experience this. I was wrong. It just wasn’t the right time. All the pain I’ve endured has led to this very moment.. my own little family.

“Mumma – I know you’re looking down with bright eyes and a big smile. Baby Consy – protect us from above. This is us now.”

Her late daughter Consy was named after Andersson’s mother, who died in November 2017 of cancer.
