Lisa Curry’s daughter Morgan expecting third child a year after sister Jaimi’s tragic death

Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s daughter Morgan Gruell has announced she’s expecting her third child with husband Ryan Gruell.

On Sunday, the Pilates instructor, 31, shared a sonogram to Instagram and revealed that their baby, whose gender they are yet to reveal, is due at the end of May. 

In September, Morgan commemorated one year since the death of her sister Jaimi Kenny, who passed away at age 33.

Jaimi suffered from alcoholism, depression and an eating disorder prior to her death.

The Olympic swimmer, 59, was joined by her surviving children, Morgan and Jett Kenny, 27, and her husband, Mark Tabone, as she threw flowers into the ocean to honour Jaimi, who died on September 14, 2020.  

Lisa also shared a moving quote from Dr. Joanne Cacciatore Aguerke about losing a child, which she said summed up ‘what we can’t express’.

It read: ‘Don’t forget that even if I have living children, my heart still aches for the one who is not here – for I am never quite complete without my child.

‘My child may have died; but my love – and my motherhood – never will.’

Another section said: ‘There are days when I still feel paralysed. My chest feels the sinking weight of my child’s absence and, sometimes, I feel as if I will explode from the grief.’

The accompanying photos showed Lisa, Morgan and her grandson Flynn, throwing flowers into the ocean.

Lisa also shared a touching photo of herself holding hands with Morgan and Jett as they gazed into the distance.

A final image captured Lisa and a group of Jaimi’s friends posing for a photo, with the words ‘Jaimi we love you’ written in the sand in front of them.

Lisa also wore a T-shirt with an image of her late daughter on the front.
