Mary Berry opens up on the loss of her son in heartbreaking video
And... we’re crying already. Oh boy.
Our favourite chef and Bake Off judge Mary Berry, along with other celebs like Rio Ferdinand, Joey Essex plus Ben Fogle and his wife Marina took part in a charity video.
The video was put together for Child Bereavement UK and asked the stars, if they had one more minute with a loved one who has passed away what would they say to them?
Devastatingly, Mary Berry lost her 19-year-old son William in 1989. The teen was victim to a car crash and didn’t survive his injuries.
Eighty-two-year-old Mary, who is also mum to daughter Annabel and son Thomas, struggled to hold back her tears as she said;
“If I could have one more minute with William, I would thank him for being a brilliant son.”
Rio Ferdinand said if he had one more minute with his wife Rebecca, who died from breast cancer in 2015, he would say;
“I’d definitely ask her about what she wanted with the children growing up at different stages, poignant moments in their development… Tell her I love her… There’s loads.”
Ben Fogle and his wife Marina had a son who was stillborn and as Ben said, they didn’t even have the first minute with their son. But Marina said;
“I think we would say what we tell our children every night and every morning, that we love them.”
