Good news: Malin Andersson is expecting a baby – two years after tragically losing her baby daughter Consy
‘I can’t describe to you all how I feel writing this. Everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I visualised. A solid partner in my life, who has been there in the background – witnessed my life over the past 4 years and has stuck by me as a friend… and now a lover.
‘This couldn’t feel any more right – and we’re now bringing a beautiful soul into this world. My heart feels electric writing this, my eyes tearing up… because I can promise you all there was once upon a time I never thought I could experience this.
‘I was wrong. It just wasn’t the right time. All the pain I’ve endured has led to this very moment… my own little family.
‘Mumma – I know you’re looking down with bright eyes and a big smile. Baby Consy – protect us from above. This is us now.’ [sic]
Consy was born seven weeks premature in December 2018 and was being treated at Great Ormond Street hospital, but sadly passed away aged four weeks on 22 January 2019.
Since then Malin has struggled with further strife, reportedly left terrified after her violent ex recently broke his licence conditions meaning he has been sent back to prison.
Tom Kemp, 28, was jailed at Aylesbury Crown Court in September after admitting to actual bodily harm, which left the reality star ‘black and blue’ but was released three months later in January.

He was then reportedly sent back to prison after failing to comply with the rules he was set as he continued to serve part of his sentence in the community.
A source told the publication: ‘Malin was really shocked when she heard he had been in her area.
‘She had really hoped his prison sentence would mark the end of having to think about him ever again.

‘The whole thing has been incredibly stressful, but Malin is very strong and just hopes he’s learnt his lesson now.’
A source also told MailOnline: ‘Malin was glad to hear that Tom had been sent back to prison for breaching his license conditions, but to learn that he only returned for a week due to his sentence coming to an end concerns her.
‘She feels that far too often the justice system fails survivors of domestic violence and ultimately believes that this contributes to the reason why perpetrators continue to abuse.’
Tom, was jailed at last year after following an attack in which he broke her hand.
TV star Malin previously accused the ‘narcissist’ of being abusive in Instagram posts in 2019 and shared pictures of herself with a cut cheek and bloodied nose.
But Tom, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, denied the claims at the time, branding her a ‘liar with mental health issues’.

The former couple had an on-off romance, splitting briefly during her pregnancy, amid claims Tom had been unfaithful to her, but reconciling shortly before the birth.
In March they split again, with Malin admitting it was better to end things between them as she and her partner struggled with their grief.
In October, Malin told how she believes the physical abuse Tom subjected her to while she was pregnant was a factor behind her daughter’s death at just one month old.

She revealed Kemp ‘slapped and punched’ her while she was six months pregnant, causing her to fall on her back and her stomach to hit the side of a bed.
Speaking to The Sun, Malin said she is convinced the incident contributed to Consy’s death as after a few days, she noticed she wasn’t moving around as much.
A month later, the movements reduced again and Malin insisted Kemp drive her to the hospital where doctors discovered Consy’s irregular heartbeat, leading her to have an emergency cesarean that day at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
She said: ‘When Tom threw me about, I’d tense my stomach so much, I could feel her pausing inside me. The doctors didn’t understand what happened to her, but I know in my heart.’
In June last year, Malin posted a lengthy Instagram post, captioned: ‘The third and final lot, I am NOT a victim anymore.’
Calling their romance ‘toxic and unhealthy’, she said ‘it has been an ongoing battle to emotionally let go as dealing with the grief from both my mum and daughter I’ve had him as my comforter.’
Accusing Kemp of emotional and physical abuse she said: ‘Including being spat at, hit, pushed, kicked, scratched, spoken down to, controlled, manipulated, cheated and so much more I experienced the worst pain yet to come last night.’
Malin claimed she had received a phone call from a woman asking why the star had been texting her ‘boyfriend.’

She wrote: ‘After a calm and collected call with her we had finally came to the confirmation they have been speaking since January (when our daughter was in intensive care).’
‘While I’ve been focusing on my mental health I’ve been receiving multiple emails, calls, texts from one extreme to the other (I’m a bad mum, my mum hates me I’m going to hell to the extreme of I love you I can’t be without you etc.
‘This ladies is a fine example of a narcissistic man.
‘I will NOT be another victim to domestic violence, I will not be beaten mentally or physically when I’ve fought through so much worse than this.
Adding that she was ‘exhausted, heartbroken and confused’ she urged her followers to ‘listen to your gut and learn to love yourself.’
