Kym Marsh has taken so social media to share a heartfelt tribute to her stillborn son Archie on the 12th anniversary of his death.
The 44-year-old former Coronation Street actress tragically lost her little boy in February 2009 after being born at 21 weeks and five days.
She wrote how Archie was her "missing piece" and went on to list all the things she wished he had been able to do.
Kym shared a photograph of an A for Archie and an angel holding a candle on her Instagram page on Thursday.
The television presenter penned: "12 years. 12 years of wishing. Wishing we had seen you open your eyes, wishing we had seen you smile, wishing we had heard you laugh, wishing we had heard your voice.
"Wishing I had heard you say 'I love you mummy' wishing above all wishes that you were here, where you belong. Too many wishes to write down.
"Today you should be opening gifts, laughing at silly cards people have sent, blowing out candles on the birthday cake you will eat far too much of!! Sulking at me when I tell you it’s time to stop playing that new computer game and get to bed."
She continued: "Arguing with your little sister because you’ve told her a million times she can’t play with your new gifts!! Telling me I can’t have a kiss anymore cos you’re now far too cool for that! I would give anything to kiss your little cheek one more time!"
"Well, you may not be with us in body but we know you are ALWAYS with us, you’re everywhere around us, you’re always in our hearts.
"Archie you will always be the missing piece of our family. The missing piece of me forever. We miss you. We love you more than words could ever express. Happy birthday our sweet angel boy. xxx."
Kym's poignant social media tribute was inundated with messages from a majority of her 465,000 followers.
One fan penned: "Wonderful meaningful words."
A second person posted: "Sending you lots of love."
While a third said: "Happy Birthday Archie, he’ll be having a party up there and looking down on you."
A fourth follower said: "I'm so sorry for your loss Kym, but know that you carry him with you in your heart."
Archie's father Jamie Lomas, who pays Warren Fox in Hollyoaks, commented with a heart emoji.
Kym also included a few lines from Archie's little sister Polly, who she shares with Jamie, 45.
The nine-year-old girl said: "Dear Archie, I wasn’t there when you were born but I was told you looked exactly like me!
"I just wanted to also thank you for my life and how amazing it is I wish I could spend every second with you even if it was just for one day. I love you x from your little sister Polly xxx."
Kym has two other children, David, 25, and Emily, 23, who she shares with ex-partner Dave Cunliffe.
