Mollie King’s first Christmas with her new baby daughter including tribute to late dad

In November, Mollie King gave birth to her first child, a baby girl named Annabella, who she shares with her partner, cricketer, Stuart Broad.

However, just days later, Mollie sadly lost her father, Stephen, to a brain tumour.

This Christmas, she shared snaps of her first festive period as a mother which of course was bittersweet, as she documented “having one chair less” but also the joy of “seeing Annabella laugh for the first time.”

“This year, more than ever, I’ve been so grateful to be surrounded by my family at Christmas time,” the 35 year old wrote.

“For me it’s been mixed emotions heading up to Christmas Day as I’ve feared all of us sitting down for lunch and having one chair less without our Pops at the table.”

“I know I’m not the only one who will be missing a loved one this Christmas and my heart goes out to anyone who’s also going through this.”

Amongst the images, she shared a photo of her and Stuart cuddling up on the sofa, snuggling with their baby girl and Mollie’s dog, Alfie.

The BBC Radio 1 presenter also posted shots of her nephews opening up their presents on Christmas morning, followed by them jumping around on the sofa in the evening as they enjoyed a festive film.

Mollie also documented the sweet moment she was breastfeeding Annabella, as her two nephews smiled for the selfie. She also snapped Alfie enjoying some present opening time as he sat on Mollie’s mum’s lap.

The Beauty and the Geek host continued: “I’ve kept reminding myself how lucky I am to be surrounded by so many of the people I love and without a doubt the constant chatter from the little ones.”

“Countryside walks and Home Alone on repeat made sure we all created more special memories, and most importantly, that my little girl’s Christmas was magical, just as it should be,” she continued.

“Thank you Mum for getting us all together. Sending so much love to anyone else going through this at this time xx.”

Back in November, the singer also posted a heartbreaking tribute to her late father, which included a thank you for holding “on a few extra days to meet baby Annabella.”

“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,” she wrote in the emotional post.

“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.

“You gave us your everything. You will be in our hearts and our memories every single day,” she concluded.
