Still hurts: Kym Marshs message about her stillborn son is heartbreaking

Kym Marsh has spoken out about losing her son Archie on his ten-year anniversary.

The Coronation Street actor opened up about how she coped during the tragic time. 

She lost Archie in 2009 when he died moments after he was born 18 weeks premature.

She told OK! magazine, ''When I opened my eyes on the morning of his anniversary, I was inconsolable for a while.''

She continued, ''I was more emotional this year, maybe it’s because it’s been a decade.” 

She added, ''Some years I cope better but this year wasn’t one of them.”

Kym luckily found comfort in her daughter Emile, who is expecting her first child. 

Kym went on to say that hearing her grandson’s heartbeat gave her a lot of comfort. 

She continued, ''In the evening we had family around and set off balloons in the garden at Archie’s birth minute.”

The 42-year-old posted a picture of a shrine to him on Instagram with his footprints, handprints, an angel sculpture, and a candle.

She captioned it, ''10 years on and it still hurts like it was yesterday. I wish I could show you a photo of a smiling boy surrounded by gifts.''

She continued, ''I wish I could show you videos of his party, playing with his mates and eating sweets til his tummy hurt. I wish I could show you photos of us all celebrating his birthday with him front and centre blowing out his candles. I wish I could kiss him and say happy birthday son. I wish I could hold his hand again just for one minute. I wish for so many moments I can’t have.”

Her fans showered the post with words of support.

One said, ''Happy 10th heavenly birthday Archie my heart goes out to you Kym.''

While another wrote, ''A pain that never eases!!! A pain that is ours forever. A pain that some days I long for as it reminds me....I AM a mummy. Sending you strength and love.''

We applaud Kym's bravery in opening up about such a difficult time in her life.
