This Is Beautiful

From Tom Evans:

During the interview he also claimed that Alfie had managed to battle through the past two nights because he’s been lying on his mother Kate James’s chest “nonstop”.

He says the 23-month-old is “so blessed” to have Kate as a mum – and that he himself has been shocked by her strength at such a devastating time.

“Alfie’s fought through the night the last two nights because he’s been lying on her chest nonstop,” he told LBC presenter Nick Ferrari this morning.

“And him and his mum have become closer now more than ever before.”

And its harmfulness has been a ... Read More
