The television presenter made the sad announcement on social media Monday evening revealing that baby Malachi fell ill with doctors trying their best to save his life.

Perfect in every way. Malachi knew how much he was loved, and so he did all he could to stay with us. With the help of a most dedicated team of doctors & nurses, our little baby fought, until Jesus healed him by taking him to Himself,” she wrote.

Kambua noted that Malachi is in a better place free from pain and any worldly care.

“Our tears fall freely because our hearts are broken beyond words. But our faith and hope remains unshaken because we have our trust in a dependable God. A good, good Father. We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him, a moment at a time.” she shared.
