Malin Andersson has revealed she has tragically suffered a miscarriage.

The Love Island series two star, 29, posted a picture of two pregnancy tests on her Instagram, accompanied by a lengthy caption explaining why she had been quiet on social media recently.

“Sometimes I need to take time to deal with my life privately, as my life is so public, I needed to take time out,” Malin explained.

“The past few months haven’t been easy for me, but there is also something else I would like to address.

“You all know that I am very transparent about taboo subjects, and I like to shed light on things that are often not spoken about and especially trauma I have experienced myself.

“I found out I was pregnant – and I then soon after miscarried.”

Referring to the heart-breaking death of her daughter Consy in 2019, who died shortly after being born seven weeks premature, Malin continued: “It pains me to talk about this in detail right now due to what happened to Consy…

“But I want you all to know that miscarriage doesn’t discriminate and it can happen to anyone. Even when you think you have gone through enough.

“I’ll be fine – my strength never ceases to amaze me sometimes but I felt that I needed to share this with you all as I’ve never been one to hold anything back – especially when I know it can help someone else. “

Both friends and fans of the social media personality were quick to praise the star for her remarkable strength and candour during a deeply personal and understandably upsetting time.

Fellow Love Island star Anna Vakili wrote: “So sorry Malin. You’re so strong. Sending lots of love.”

Reality TV star Jake Quickenden added: “So sorry mate,” before adding a loveheart emoji.

Meanwhile, one fan wrote: “Most amazing confident and REAL person on here! Truly someone to admire and look up to. So sorry for your loss, you’re an amazing person, sending love.”

A second sympathised: “It is incredibly heartbreaking I’ve been there as have you but I promise it makes you stronger, I know I’m just a random stranger but my DMs are always open to anyone who needs a chat.”

Malin has previously spoken candidly about daughter Consy’s death two years ago.

At just 4lbs and 8oz’s, Consy was too small for treatment for a rare heart defect, with Malin telling OK! Magazine that all they could do is “pray for a miracle” before Consy passed away in January.

Malin, who split with Consy’s father Tom Kemp not long after her tragic death, has since been vocal about the effect the devastating loss had on her.

We’re sending you all our love, Malin.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …

Published

Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a pic.twitter.com/2chGZP9hr4

Facebook Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster jabs.

From Friday, users will be able to update their profiles with frames or stickers to show that they have had their top-up jab or aim to when they become eligible.

It follows on from people previously being able to show they have had their first and second jabs on certain social networking websites and apps.

TikTok also held a “grab a jab” event in London earlier this year.

I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones

More than 16 million booster vaccines have now been given across the UK.

People who are aged 40 and above and received their second dose of their vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible to have their booster.

A new campaign advert is also being launched on Friday, which shows how Covid-19 can build up in enclosed spaces and how to prevent that from happening.

Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said:  “Getting your booster is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family this winter.

“It is fantastic to see some of the biggest household names further back the phenomenal vaccine rollout, allowing their users to proudly display that they have played their part in helping us build a wall of defence across the country.

“I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top-up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”
