Rob Delaney took to twitter to announce his wife’s pregnancy to all his fans.
Just had 2 typically wonderful @NHSEnglandLDN midwives visit my pregnant wife & I for a home birth assessment. Love to all marching for the NHS today. See my sad love letter to the NHS below. https://t.co/isAkRDqh2X— rob delaney (@robdelaney) June 30, 2018
They recently lost their two and a half year old son around five months back. Their son was battling with brain cancer and sadly succumbed to it. In January 2016, Delaney took to facebook to tell about his son to the world. “Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss. He had surgery to remove the tumor and further treatment through the early part of 2017. Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January,” Delaney wrote in a statement. “Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following 15 months living in hospitals,” continued Delaney, saying that even though Henry’s “tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities,” his son had “quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum.”
Today would’ve been our beautiful Henry’s 3rd birthday. If you’d like to give him a little gift, you can make a donation to @RainbowTrustCC: https://t.co/5kswt0oySK or @NoahsArkHospice: https://t.co/UueI6rI5Y3 He loved everyone in those organizations very much. pic.twitter.com/Ybbj1gVFis— rob delaney (@robdelaney) April 16, 2018
“His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound,” added Delaney.
