Radio star Fifi Box has paid tribute to ex Grant Kenny’s eldest daughter Jaimi Kenny on Instagram, saying her daughter Trixie, has had her “little heart… broken”. Jaimi, 33, passed away in hospital on Monday following a battle with a long-term illness.
“The loss of such a beautiful loving sister and friend is suffocating,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of photos of Jaimi and seven-year-old Trixie — who share father Grant together. Fifi welcomed Trixie in 2013 after a brief relationship with the former Ironman.
“We laughed, we cried, we shared so many wonderful memories that I will keep alive for Trixie who loved her big sister so much, her little heart is broken. You loved Trixie with all your heart and she felt every inch of your love.
“With every tight squeezy cuddle, your love poured into her. We were so blessed to have you in our lives. You were such a true and loyal friend, we love you so much and can’t bear the pain of you not being here.”
The devastating news was confirmed by the family on Monday, in a statement penned by Jaimi’s father Grant. He wrote: “It is with a very heavy heart that Lisa and I confirm that our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital this morning in the company of loving family.
“Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself.”
Jaimi’s mum Australian swimmer Lisa Curry also paid tribute. The former Olympian, who shares three children with ex-husband Grant, penned the gut-wrenching post on Tuesday morning and described her first-born child as a “caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself”.
“Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,” she wrote. “So loved. So beautiful. So kind to everyone. So painful. I can barely breathe.”
Jaimi’s younger sister Morgan Gruell also took to Instagram on Tuesday to pay tribute to her late sister.
“It still doesn’t feel real that you are not here,” she wrote alongside a beautiful picture of the pair smiling at each other. “I am so grateful for the time that I had you as my big sister. I am grateful that Flynn got two and a half years with his Aunty. I am grateful for you doing my hair and letting me borrow your clothes. I am grateful for you.
“There is no one like you. I love you so much and will forever miss you. Rest now beautiful sister, you will never be forgotten.”
