It’s a subject close to Kym’s heart, as the 46-year-old had a still birth with her son Archie in February 2009, with her little boy being born 18 weeks early.

Kym also attended a group session for women who have been through a still birth, with the participants creating their own art works to help them process their heartbreaking experiences.

The ladies told Kym the group had been a huge support to them, and had helped them find a way to talk about their babies and what happened.

Kym confessed she had also struggled to speak about Archie in the early days after his tragic passing, but had also found a way past that.

When another lady said she had finally learned not to blame herself for what happened, Kym agreed she had felt the same, and while it was natural to feel that way, it wasn’t the truth and it was important for them both to have learned that.

The emotional segment concluded with Kym overseeing Archie’s name being added to the memory wall at the exhibition alongside those of other stillborns.

As she watched his name being painted on, she wiped tears from her eyes and said: “I’m so proud, so proud to have him on this wall.”

Kym was immediately flooded with messages of support on Twitter.
