Pregnant Fearne Cotton admits her family are having a 'day of reflection' as they remember Jesse’s mother
The 33-year-old star – who is currently expecting her second child with Jesse – posted a photo of Krissy Findlay to her Instagram page and spoke of how the date of her passing was hugely significant.
‘A day of reflection in our house,’ Fearne captioned the picture. ‘On this day 10 years ago Jesse’s mum Krissy passed away and 4 years to the day Jesse and I met’
Krissy passed away aged 57 in 2005 from a suspected Valium overdose. She was married to Jesse’s dad, Ronnie Wood of Rolling Stones fame, from 1971 to 1978.
The photo Fearne used of Krissy shows the former model smiling at the camera when she was younger and many fans think there’s actually a slight resemblance between her and Fearne.
‘Is it just me or is there a huge resemblance between you and his mum? Both stunning,’ one wrote.
Another commented: ‘@fearnecotton4 such a beautiful woman and yes there are similarities between you and her xx’
Fearne recently spoke of how she and Jesse, 38, paid tribute to Krissy at their wedding last year in a moving way as they discovered a connection between the late model and Fearne’s dress.
The sequinned collar added to Fearne’s gown was made by theatrical costumier Maggie Cook, who revealed that the piece had been taken from a frock worn by Krissy’s friend Diana Ross.
‘Jesse’s mum was really close to Diana Ross when Jesse was little – Diana gave her Jesse’s moses basket and changing mat,’ Fearne told the Mail On Sunday last year. ‘So it felt like it was meant to be.
‘We’ve got lots of pictures of her [Krissy] throughout the house because Jesse misses her so much.’
As well as sharing her poignant Instagram tribute to mark the anniversary of Krissy’s passing, Fearne has also been spending quality time with Jesse.
The expectant couple – who welcome their first son, Rex, in February 2013 – posed for a photo this morning as they visited London skyscraper The Shard.
‘At the new garden at the very top of the shard ( jesse loves heights ),’ Fearne told her followers.
