94.5 Kfm DJ Ryan O’Connor and his wife, Karen, have lost their baby daughter a week before she was due to be born.

94.5 Kfm has been saddened by the death of Grace O'Connor, daughter of DJ Ryan O’Connor and his wife, Karen. Yesterday Ryan posted a short statement on Facebook: “Hi everyone, very sad news for myself and my wife Karen this morning: It's with a heavy heart we say rest in peace to our daughter Grace O'Connor. We will love you forever. Heaven has a place for you. Thank you for all your love and prayers. Ryan.”

Since the news broke yesterday morning the station has been inundated with messages of support and love for the couple.

Station manager Colleen Louw said: “We are all devastated by the news. The magnitude of their loss is beyond words. We ask that everyone keep them in their thoughts and prayers as [Ryan and Karen] go through this distressing time.  We also ask that everyone respect their privacy, to give them the time and space that they will need to find healing.”

Grace was due to be delivered on 15 April.

Ryan adds, “We are overwhelmed by the love and support that we have received. Thank you for all your messages.”
