Rob & Leah Delaney Pregnant Five Months After 2 1/2 Year Old Son Henry Dies
Comedian Rob Delaney announced that his wife Leah has become pregnant five months after their 2 1/2-year-old son Henry passed away from brain cancer.
The Catastrophe actor relayed the good news in a tweet that also featured a video how the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) financially aided his family during Henry’s battle for life.
Just had 2 typically wonderful @NHSEnglandLDN midwives visit my pregnant wife & I for a home birth assessment. Love to all marching for the NHS today. See my sad love letter to the NHS below. https://t.co/isAkRDqh2X

Bernie Sanders retweeted it, adding that Medicare for all should be passed in the United States in order to help with overwhelming medical bills.
No parent should have to worry about outrageous medical bills while their child is sick. We must pass Medicare for all so that health care is a right for all people in America, not a privilege for a few who can afford it. https://t.co/ec0YzrjZ41

Additionally, the comedian answered questions regarding NHS:
My experience of NHS over last 4 yrs, 15 months of which was spent in diff. hospitals: NHS is amazing for neighborhood doc small stuff (flu, stitches) & AMAZING for huge stuff (cancer/heart). For medium stuff (knee surgery) you may wait a bit as Tories choose to underfund service https://t.co/ncnfVEiSxF

Read Delaney’s Facebook post that announced his son’s death below.
On what would’ve been Henry’s 3rd birthday, April 16, Delaney shared a sweet photo of his baby boy.
Here’s Henry not long before he died. You can see his little tracheostomy tube on his neck and his left eye is turned in due to nerve damage from surgery. He has a bus & a turtle though so he’s happy.He was such a sweet boy. pic.twitter.com/D3liQXOqyi
