LITTLE Women star Christy McGinity has posted an emotional tribute to her late daughter Violet on what would've been her 1st birthday.
The 43-year-old actress tragically lost her daughter when she was just two weeks old, following a premature birth at 33 weeks.
Reality star Christy posted a series of photos of Violet in the hospital as she told fans how her "heart was broken" when her daughter died.
"Today our Violet would have been a year old," she wrote to her 433,000 followers. "We celebrate the two weeks we got to spend with our sweet girl.
"We cried when you passed away, and we still cry today. Although we loved you dearly, we couldn't make you stay.
"Your golden heart stopped beating, we laid you down to rest. God broke our hearts to prove that he only takes the best."
She signed off the emotional post writing directly to her daughter: "Violet Eva Carazo, we miss and love you so much."
Boyfriend Gonzalo also penned a message to his first child, with Christy already having daughter Autumn and son Trenton from her marriage to Todd Gibel.
"You made me a dad and for that I’m forever grateful," Gonzalo wrote on Instagram: "You gave your Mom and I two amazing weeks that we’ll always treasure forever.
"We still cry and think about you everyday. Until we meet again my Angel."
Along the beautiful messages, Christy and Gonzalo shared never-before-seen photos of Violet in the NICU.
The photos show both parents cradling the newborn and worryingly looking over her in the incubator.
Violet Eva passed away on March 20, 2020, with Christy telling her social media following the baby had gone "to play with the angels."
Christy gave birth at 33 weeks along in her pregnancy, with Violet weighing 3lbs 15oz and was only 15 inches long.
Christy previously told The Sun exclusively the couple postponed funeral services for their daughter because of the coronavirus pandemic, as they want the memorial to be in New York where Gonzo and his family reside.
Christy told The Sun exclusively: “We are going to have a memorial of some type and spread her ashes.
"I was hoping the ocean. I’m going to bring Violet’s ashes to New York as soon as it’s safe for me to fly.”
