Recently, Malin opened up about the grief she felt after her newborn daughter tragically died earlier this year.

Malin's daughter Consy passed away four weeks after the reality TV star welcomed her into the world with now ex-boyfriend Tom Kemp.

Consy was born seven weeks premature after doctors detected a heart defect at 33 weeks.

Malin, who also lost her mum in 2017, said it took a few days after Consy's death for the grief to hit.

"It was a few days after she died when it sunk in and I didn't leave my bed, racking my brain to come up with reasons why I should carry on living."

The tragic star spoke emotionally when baby Consy passed away.

"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."
