Rob Delaney and wife are expecting, months after losing their son

Some good news for the family!

Back in February, we learned the heartbreaking news that actor, Rob Delaney, had lost his young son.

The actor and comedian announced the news via Facebook, saying that his son, Henry, had died of a cancerous brain tumour.

The two-year-old had been diagnosed with the tumour in 2016 shortly after his first birthday.

He wrote:

“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 fifteen months living in hospitals.

“His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum.

“His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.”

Today, though, the family revealed some good news.

Rob’s gorgeous wife is expecting another child.

He shared the news on Twitter, while showing his support for those marching for the NHS in England today.

We couldn’t be happier for Rob and his family.

They truly deserve this joy.
