Kelly Kay has shared some touching news in the wake of her loss.
Kelly, who is the girlfriend of late Oregon Ducks football player Spencer Webbannounced that she is expecting his child after the 22-year-old passed away from an accidental fall in July. In honor of the news, she took to Instagram to pen a message to her late partner.
“We created an angel before heaven gained one,” she wrote on Aug. 22. “All you ever wanted was to be a father…I know you’ll be the best one from up above.”
She continued her thoughts by reflecting on her future as a mother. “Can’t believe I have to do it without you but knowing I’ll have a piece of you keeps me going,” Kelly wrote. “I can’t wait to meet the person that’s half you, half me.”
She added, “I love you forever, both of you.”
Kelly shared photos of herself with a sonogram and a message that read, “I’ll be your legacy. I’ll be your voice. You live on in me. So I’ve made the choice. To honor your life. By living again. I love you. I miss you. I’ll see you again.”
The announcement of her little one comes more than a month after Spencer passed away on July 13. At the time, a statement from the Lane County Sheriff’s Office reported that he was found about 100 yards down a steep hill after he “fell and struck his head.”
One day later, Kelly shared a tribute for the fallen football player, referring to him as “my best friend my twin flame the love of my life.” Later in her heartfelt homage, Kelly spoke on the plans they had and the legacy he left behind, writing, “I don’t know where to go from here but I know you’ll be watching over me keeping me strong.”
