Kym Marsh honours late son Archie 10 years after his death

The actress shared an Instagram post with her followers

Kym Marsh has honoured her late son Archie 10 years after his death.

The Coronation Street actress lost her baby boy - who died within moments of being born in February 2009 - and the actress has paid homage to Archie by posting a touching tribute on Instagram, admitting that the pain "still hurts like yesterday".

Captioning a photo of a candle-lit angel ornament and Archie's hand and footprints, Kym wrote: "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.

"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. Happy birthday my angel. Fly High up there kid. I love you always and forever. Mummy xxxx (sic)"

I can't believe it was a decade ago.

"It's going to be an extremely emotional day, and there will obviously be tears.

"But it's better for us to remember him and feel happy that he was here, than being overwhelmed by sadness because he's not."
