Restaurateur and popular TV chef Kylie Kwong has spoken publicly for the first about the grief of losing her first child earlier this year. Named Lucky, the baby boy was due to be born last month, but the pregnancy, to Kylie’s partner, an artist known only as Nell, resulted in a premature stillbirth in early April.

Kylie and Nell have been together for five years, and were devastated at the loss of their son. Both of them are practising Buddhists, and have needed all their strength to remain positive.

I’m sure Kylie’s many fans will be saddened to hear of the loss she and Nell have experienced, and will send them their sympathies, if only in thought.
