A soap actress has taken to Facebook to thank fans for their support, a month after her baby son was stillborn.

37 year-old Ada Nicodemou has reached out to her fans, thanking them for their “love and support through a very difficult time.”

Ada was born in Larnaca in Cyprus, but has been an Australian resident since 1987. She is best known for playing Leah Patterson-Baker in the popular soap opera Home and Away and is also the host of the reality series Please Marry My Boy.

Ada married Chris Xipolitas in 2007; the couple have a son, Johnas, who was born in August 2012. Earlier this year, in March, the couple announced they were expecting their second child, but tragically, their son Harrison was stillborn on 7th August.

Ada’s heartbreaking message reads as follows:

“Chrys and I would like to thank everyone for their love and support through a very difficult time. Thank you xo.”

The actress also added a poignant poem entitled “Never”:

“I’ll never get to see your precious face;
or whisper words to make you feel safe
I’ll never get to hold you tight
when you can’t sleep at night
I’ll never get to sing you a sweet lullaby,
to calm you down when you cry
I’ll never get to fall asleep with you in my arms,
all bundled in a blanket to keep you warm
I’ll never get to hear you laugh and giggle
or see your little toes wiggle
There are many things I will never get to do,
but the hardest is not being with you.”
