Actress Kym Marsh recently posted a heartwarming and emotional photograph and caption about her 8 year old daughter Polly and new grandson Teddy admitting that she never thought that she would be a grandmother at 43 years of age.
"My beautiful baby girl and my beautiful grandson! This picture stirs so many emotions. I am beyond proud of these gorgeous children. Polly is my rainbow baby, nearly lost her many times throughout my pregnancy and yet here she is. She’s a beautiful little whirlwind and I thank god for her every day! I don’t know what my life would be without her!"
"And now she is a happy healthy 8 yr old Aunty to our gorgeous Teddy. I never thought I would have a grandchild so soon but boy am I glad I have him. He has brought so much joy to my life and I feel incredibly lucky. I hope I will always make them both proud. I hope I can teach them things in life and I hope they will always love me the way I love them. I am truly truly blessed!! #feelingthankful ❤️❤️"
"Polly is my rainbow baby", says Kym.
Kym gave birth to her second daughter in 2011 after tragically losing son Archie moments after he was born 18 weeks prematurely in 2009. Her pregnancy with Polly was also a worrying time as Kym was confined to bed rest while at home. The TV star suffered with an incompetent cervix, "when your cervix is too weak to stay closed during pregnancy due to the extra weight of the baby. It can cause premature birth or late miscarriage." Kym was a high-risk patient and monitored closely during Polly's pregnancy, and gave birth 5 weeks early. "The odds were against Polly surviving, she’s our little miracle. She’s grown into a beautiful, bright girl. I’m so proud of her, especially when I think of how it could’ve been", Kym told OK! Kym is also mum to David, 24 and Emilie, 22.
Her eldest daughter, Emilie, gave birth to Teddy at the age of 22 in May, earlier this year. Teddy is Kym's first grandchild. His middle name, Archie, is a touching tribute to Kym's late son. His other middle name, David, is a reference to Emilie's brother, dad and grandfather. Speaking about Teddy, Emilie said, “When I found out I was having a boy I knew I wanted the name Archie to feature, but I wanted it to be a surprise for Mum.
“When I found out his name, I burst into floods of tears. But now Archie lives on in Teddy’s name. Having a baby boy in the house with Archie’s name as part of his means the world to me" - Kym.
It's clear to see, Kym is one proud Glam-Ma!
