It’s the news Malin Andersson never wanted to share with her followers.
On Wednesday morning, the Love Island alumna revealed on Instagram that her four-week-old daughter Consy has died.
“Completely in love with you…and my Mum just wanted you to be with her. Your time wasn’t ready yet,” Malin shared on social media with a photo of her baby girl. “Mummy loves you. I stayed with you each day…you opened your eyes one last time for me and I saw those beautiful big brown eyes. I’m so sorry I couldn’t do anymore.”
She added, “Go be with grandma Consy. My angel. Rest in peace CONSY GLORIA EMMA ANDERSSON-KEMP 23/12/18-22/01/19.”
Malin named her first child with partner Tom Kemp after her late mother who died in November 2017 following a battle with breast cancer.

Happy New Year..Tom and I are so happy to let you all know that our baby girl CONSY arrived in this world 23rd December 2018, seven weeks early. She is so beautiful, we are totally in love with her and feel so blessed that she is here but unfortunately due to complications, she is currently being cared for at Great Ormond Street – we have received a number of messages over the past week and there has been a lot of speculation and so we wanted to share our news with you so you could hear from us first hand. We are so thankful for the amazing care she is receiving here and promise to update you on her progress but for the time being we hope you can all respect our privacy. We can’t wait to share her with you all soon. Love, Ma & Tom x
Although baby Consy was born seven weeks prematurely back on December 23, the newborn was receiving care at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital.
And in recent days, Malin shared updates about her daughter. She also asked for prayers as Consy fought to become stronger.
“All your prayers, messages, healing… it means the world to us. Baby Consy is still in intensive care, and fighting each day,” she wrote back on January 8. “This has been the most difficult time I have ever gone through. I just want to hold her.. .It’s different to my mum last year. My mum was ready to go… my little girl isn’t. She has given me the ultimate purpose in my life and I’m not prepared to let her go.”
Fans may remember Malin from season two of Love Island. Many of her co-stars immediately expressed their condolences in the comments section.
“There’s no words,” Rykard Jenkins wrote online. “Consy is in Paradise now. Please know you have friends out here and we love you.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Malin and her family during this difficult time.
