MOLLIE King has revealed she is heartbroken after the death of her father from a brain tumour.
The Saturdays singer announced the loss of her dad Stephen just days after she welcomed her baby daughter.
Mollie, 35, posted a series of snaps of her and her dad to her instagram as she revealed the devastating news.
She captioned the images: “Heartbroken beyond words. In August, my family’s world was shattered when my Dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
“Last week, we had to face the day we hoped would never come and say goodbye. Dad, we love you with all our hearts and we will miss you every single day.
“You have been our hero and it’s impossible to think of our lives without you.”
She went onto reveal that her dad met her baby daughter Annabella, who she gave birth to last week.
Mollie revealed: “You have always been there for us with every step we’ve taken and you even held on a few extra days to meet baby Annabella. You gave us your everything. You will be in our hearts and our memories every single day .”
The post was soon inundated with condolences.
Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins wrote: “So sorry, just heartbreaking for you Mollie. Sending so much love & a huge hug ”
Mollie’s pal Jordan North added: “Oh Molly, I’m am so sorry to hear this news. Thinking of you and sending all my love to you, and all your family. ”
Mollie’s former The Saturdays bandmate Frankie Bridge wrote simply: “Love you xxx”
Giovanna Fletcher commented: Oh Mollie, I’m so sorry to read this. Sending you and your family so much love!! Xxxx”
“Sending so much love Mollie xxxxxx” Emily Atack told her.
And the condolences continued to flood in from the showbiz world with the likes of Zoe Ball, Vicky Pattison, Helen Skelton and Clara Amfo all commenting on the emotional post.
Just last week, Mollie was sharing much happier news with the world.
On November 24th, she wrote on Instagram: “Welcome to the world Annabella Broad.
“We have never been so in love.”
Mollie shared the first picture of her daughter wrapped up in a onesie on a walk by the water.
Mollie kissed Annabella’s forehead as she held the baby in her arms.
She also posted a snap of her fiance Stuart Broad with their little girl.
The Radio 1 DJ has been absent on social media in recent weeks, which makes sense given the news about her dad.
