Kym Marsh’s oldest daughter, Emilie, has revealed a touching tattoo she’s had to done to pay tribute to her late brother Archie.
Mum Kym, 42, lost her son back in 2009 after he tragically died moments after his birth.
Emilie, 21, took to her Instagram this week to share a photo of her new ink on her forearm, which shows Archie’s tiny hand and foot print tattooed in black.
Emilie captioned the post: “My Archie’s actual hand and foot print,” followed by an angel and love heart emoji.
Emilie’s followers praised her for the beautiful tribute.
One person said: “Gave me goosebumps how gorgeous,” while another commented: “That’s amazing!! It’s beautiful!!”
A third added: “That’s beautiful, what a way to remember your baby brother.”
Kym and then-partner Jamie Lomas were heartbroken when Archie was born at 21 weeks, 5 days on February 11, 2009. He died just moments later.
Earlier this year, Kym took to Instagram to mark nine years since Archie passed away.
She posted a black-and-white photo of a shrine to Archie alongside the caption: “9 years ago today our lives changed forever.
“Our hearts will never heal and our tears will always fall because we miss you so much.
“I am so proud to have been your mummy. I wish we were having a party today with balloons and presents.”
She continued: “I wish I could kiss your face and hug you tightly. I wish I had heard your voice.
“I wish I wish I wish you were here. You are always in our hearts my beautiful boy.
“Happy birthday. We miss you and love you so very much. Have fun up there today little one Mummy loves you…”
Meanwhile, Kym recently opened up about how she coped with the loss of her son.
Writing in her OK! magazine column, the star said she believes the spirit of Archie is always with her.

Kym said: “I don’t have a strong belief in an organised religion but I do believe there’s a higher power that I often refer to as God.
“When I think of my late son Archie, I like to think his spirit is around me and when anyone’s going through anything tough, like a procedure in hospital, I do say to them: ‘I’ll get Archie to go and sit on your shoulder.'”
She added: “A lot of people take comfort in thinking there’s something out there and I understand why, especially when you’re dealing with the loss of a child.”
