Corrie star 'felt guilty' after giving birth the same day Kym Marsh lost son
Coronation Street star Alison King ‘felt immense guilt’ after she gave birth to her daughter, the same day that Kym Marsh lost her son.
Kym and then-husband Jamie Lomas lost Archie, who was born 21 weeks premature, in 2009 when he died shortly after his birth.
Speaking on her new BBC show Morning Live, Kym explained how her co-star Alison, who plays Carla Connor in Corrie, felt guilty about giving birth to her daughter Daisy when Kym lost her son.
‘My friend Alison King, a really good friend of mine who plays Carla Connor in Coronation Street, she gave birth to her daughter on the very same day that I lost my son – literally hours apart,’ she began.
‘And the immense guilt that she felt at the fact that she’d delivered her baby so safely and I’d lost my son, was such a hard time for both of us.’
‘And actually, we bonded through that even more and, now we share the birthday pictures. I’ll light a candle for Archie, and I’ll send her a picture, and she’ll send me a picture of Daisy,’ Kym added.
The Hearsay singer went on to add that when she lost Archie, people didn’t know how to talk to her – and some didn’t even want to go to his funeral.
She continued: ‘I personally didn’t want to talk about it initially, because I felt that if I talked about it, it would be real.
‘I had almost got to the point where I wasn’t accepting anything yet, but equally, I found that people didn’t know what to say to me or how to talk to me, so, therefore, avoided that completely.’
‘Some people didn’t want to come to his funeral because they felt…they just couldn’t cope with such a small baby’s funeral,’ she added.
‘They felt really difficult, it was a difficult thing for them.’
