Hollyoaks star Kirsty-Leigh Porter has opened up about tragically losing her baby daughter

Heartbreaking.

In December of last year, Hollyoaks actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter revealed that she had lost her baby girl.

She shared a moving post on Instagram at the time, about her devastating news.

"Our beautiful baby girl, Penny-Leigh Barber was born sleeping on the 21st of December 2018 at 6.49am, 29 weeks & 3 days young."

"My heart has never felt pain like it. Sleep sweetly our angel. We will always love you. Love your Mummy & Daddy. My Everything."


And now, on what would be her due date, Kirsty-Leigh has shared another heartbreaking post.

She wrote:

"This week in particular has been a struggle.. tomorrow is Penny-Leigh Barber’s due date - 5th March 2019. A date I spent saying over and over again, looking forward too with the most excitement, planning my whole life around."

"I’ve really had to pick myself up, and I am searching for any help. Thankfully I remembered this book I received from the bereavement suite at the hospital."


"Written by @zoeadelle Just turning a few pages and reading the words of someone who understands your experience helps. I recommend anyone who is going through this heartbreak to get hold of a copy."

We're thinking about Kirsty and her partner Paul on this tough day.
