Malin Andersson asks ‘why me’ as she splits with boyfriend after losing her baby
Malin Andersson has hinted she feels cursed after splitting with boyfriend Tom just two months after the couple lost their baby daughter Consy.
The Love Island star’s daughter passed away in January this year, just four weeks after being born.
Opening up to OK! Magazine , Malin said things had been strained between her and Tom since Consy arrived seven weeks premature on December 23.
"A situation like that will either make you or break you and we’ve been at each other’s throats," Malin admitted.
"He deals with things completely differently to me, he bottles everything up and then eventually explodes, whereas I think it’s better to talk about everything. Our relationship wasn’t healthy so I’m taking myself out of it," she added.
Malin spent just four weeks with baby Consy before she passed away at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Speaking of the short time they had together, Malin told how she got to play with Consy’s hands and feet while she was in the incubator, but heartbreakingly wasn’t able to hold her.
"I also got involved in nappy changes and was expressing [breast milk] so that she could have my milk. She was 4lb 8oz, so too small for surgery. All I could do was hope for a miracle," explained Malin.
Later in the interview, Malin spoke poignantly of the last time she saw ‘peaceful’ Consy before laying her to rest.
"We went to see her body in the morgue and she looked so peaceful but I still couldn’t hold her. I’d carried a baby for seven months and then nothing. I felt empty, I have a scar where my baby has been taken out of me but there is no baby. I am a mum without a baby.
"I couldn’t stop thinking, why me?"
Tragically, Malin lost her mum to cancer in 2017 and then said goodbye to her Love Island co-star Sophie Gradon a year later.
But in her grief, Malin said it was a comfort to think that her mum, Sophie and Consy were all together.
The former reality star is now setting up an app, named Consy UK, to provide mental health services to those in need.
Malin also said she’s been inspired to work with bereavement charities and use her own experience to help others.
