The heart-wrenching moment a dying gran-to-be finds out her grandchild’s sex

She couldn't physically travel to a scan, so her daughter brought it to her hospital bedside...


A terminally ill grandma-to-be has found out her grandchild’s sex for the first time alongside her daughter.


Stella, who had stage 4 brain and lung cancer, was too ill to attend her pregnant daughter Taylor’s gender reveal scan. So the hospital where she was being treated brought the scan equipment to her.

Resting on her mum’s hospital bed, both mum and daughter discovered Taylor was having a little girl for the very first time.

The whole thing was caught on camera, and Taylor shared the magical moment in a public post on her Facebook page, alongside the following words: 

“Wednesday afternoon was one of my forever favourite memories I got to share with my mom. I got to lay next to her, hold her hand and cry happy tears while we found out the gender of the baby.

“I can’t thank the hospital enough for allowing this to happen. For allowing me to create my last memory with my mom !! I am forever grateful ! I love you so much xoxo.”

Honestly, this video truly speaks for itself.

It’s such a heartbreakingly raw and beautiful moment between mother and daughter. We have tears in our eyes just writing about it.

Tragically, Stella passed away just a few days after the scan. And Taylor revealed she’d be naming her daughter Stella, in honour of her mum.
