Coronation Street’s Kym Marsh has written an emotional message to her late son on what would have been his 10th birthday.
The actress’s baby boy, Archie, died when he was born 18 weeks early in 2009.
Writing on Instagram, Marsh said “it still hurts like it was yesterday”.
She shared a picture of Archie’s hand and footprints next to a candle, a box with an angel on it and a framed picture of the letter “A”.
“I wish I could show you a photo of a smiling boy surrounded by gifts,” said the 42-year-old, who had Archie with her ex Jamie Lomas.
“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.
“I may not be able to hold you Arch, or give you kisses or tell you that mummy loves you more than you will ever know.
“But you are in my heart always.
“I will never forget you or stop loving you or stop missing you or stop wishing you were here.”
The actress added: “Happy birthday my angel. Fly High up there kid.
“I love you always and forever. Mummy xxxx.”
