She added: ‘I always seem to laugh when I hide my emotions, me laughing really means I’m dying inside. And as I process the question of how I’m celebrating Mother’s Day, I also ask myself if I was ever a mother myself.’ 

The TV personality added that in an ideal world her Sunday would be spent with her mother, plenty of Orchids and a homemade breakfast:

‘I’d also like to add, that my beautiful daughter Consy would also be there, giving her grandma a huge cuddle, and my mum smiling at me and telling me how proud she was of me’.

‘Just like me, I know there are other mothers who will be facing darkness on Mothering Sunday. Women are out there feeling alone. I salute anyone that has lost their mother, or daughter’.  

Malin told the publication that while she doesn’t know how she copes, she credits her friends and sister for helping her through the dark period.

And she explained that despite believing in ‘grieving it out’, she’ll dedicate Mother’s Day to being around her closest friends and family.

She ended the heartbreaking letter by asking fans to ‘always be kind to yourself’. 

Earlier this year, while reflecting on their precious few weeks together, Malin revealed: ‘I played with her hands and feet while she was in the incubator, but I couldn’t 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.’

Malin confessed that she has been torturing herself about why Consy died, admitting: ‘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?”’

Malin an ex-Tom Kemp laid their baby to rest last month yet shortly after announced they had ended their relationship as they struggled with their grief, and decided it was better to end things between them.
