The actress lost her baby four years ago

Kym Marsh has been inked in tribute to her and husband Jamie Lomas‘s stillborn son Archie.

The Coronation Street actress told her Twitter followers at the weekend that she’d honoured Archie and her other children David, Emily and Polly with an etching.

‘So…today I’ve had a new tattoo in memory of my little Archie and in honour of all my children. X❤❤,’ Tweeted Kym.

Kym, 36, and Jamie, 33, lost their son in 2009 and she still takes his ashes to special occasions with her because she ‘likes him to feel close’.

The body art on her shoulder joins the names of teenagers David and Emily, who she had with builder Dave Cunliffe.

She gave birth to her and Jamie‘s daughter Polly in 2011.

‘It’s a wonderful thing to have done. Everyone knows how upset Kym and Jamie were when they lost Archie,’ a friend tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He is never out of Kym‘s thoughts and now he will be with her every moment.’
