Ada Nicodemou's ex-husband shares heartbreaking tribute to stillborn son

Ada Nicodemou's ex-husband shares heartbreaking tribute to stillborn son

Ada Nicodemou’s ex-husband Chrys Xipolitas has shared a touching tribute to their stillborn son, Harrison, on what would have been his  fifth birthday.

“A part of me died on this day!” Xipolitas wrote in a post on Wednesday. “Eternally grateful for the 2 beautiful healthy children I have. Not a day goes by where I don’t think what if? Today you would of turned 5.”

The couple lost their second son on August 7, 2014 after the baby died in a stillbirth.

Following the loss, Nicodemou took a two-month leave from Home and Away

“We understand we have lived some of our lives in the public eye. But we respectfully ask for privacy at this difficult and extremely painful time so we can grieve and heal,” Nicodemou and Xipolitas said in a statement at the time.

A month after Harrison’s death, the actress posted a poem on her Instagram account. 

“I’ll never get to hear you laugh and giggle or see your little toes wiggle ... There are many things I will never get to do, but the hardest is not being with you,” the poem read.
