Our hearts go out to Georgia Love and all her family, after the reality star broke the news to Instagram tonight that that her Mother Belinda Love has sadly passed away, aged 60.
Belinda was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer six months ago, right before her daughter appeared on The Bachelorette Australia. Her worsening condition was mentioned throughout the series.
Georgia wrote to fans on Instagram tonight to share the news, saying:
My heart is utterly broken. 7 weeks ago we were sipping cocktails in Italy. 7 months ago you weren’t even sick. How is it possible you’re no longer here?
Mum, you were my first friend and my best friend, my rock, the one who knew me better than anyone in the world and who supported and backed me through every single thing I did.
You were the one I went to for advice, the one I shared every story with and the one who was always there to pick me up. There is so much more I need and want to share with you. I have no idea how to even begin to say goodbye.
I love you, Mum, and will continue to every single day.
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”
Here’s her heartbreaking tribute:
Tributes have started to flow in for Mrs Love, describing her as the “beautiful and beloved best friend of Christopher Love, and the loving devoted mother and best friend of Catherine (Katie) and Georgia”.
Others describer her as a bubbly, cherished woman whose life was “cut way too short”.
We send all our love to Georgia and her extended family in this incredibly difficult time for them xx
