Parents of Bradley Lowery reveal that they are expecting a baby girl as their third child
The parents of six-year-old Bradley Lowery, who lost his brave fight against neuroblastoma, have announced that they are expecting a baby girl.
Gemma and Carl Lowery, the parents of six-year-old Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery who lost his battle with neuroblastoma in July 2017 announced last month that they are expecting their third child.
Now, on Wednesday, June 2, in a video posted to the Bradley Lowery Foundation Facebook page, the couple have revealed that they are expecting a baby girl who is due to be born in November.
The video shows the expectant parents undergoing a scan to reveal the gender of the baby, before nieces Jorja and Lasey release pink confetti to confirm the good news.
The latest edition to the Lowery family will be the couple’s first daughter, who will be the younger sister to Kieran and Bradley.
Speaking in May when she revealed the pregnancy, Gemma said: “Now this decision didn’t come lightly, Carl and I have so much love to give, so after lots of conversations, I have some news to tell you…
“Baby Lowery number 3 on its way, we decided to start trying in January for a baby and it didn’t take long to see them two lines on the pregnancy stick.
“Bradley is going to be the best guardian angel to his little brother or sister.
"Myself, Carl and Kieran are absolutely over the moon and very excited for November to meet our prince or princess.”
Bradley died on July 7, 2017. His cheeky smile and never-ending cheerfulness were an inspiration to so many, with his spirit continuing to support families today.
To date, the Bradley Lowery Foundation has supported poorly children who face a range of challenges in fundraising for treatment and equipment, developed a holiday home in Scarborough so families can make precious memories, and launched a support line for the parents of children with cancer – raising more than £3 million in the process.
