Comedian and actor Rob Delaney recently shared his heartfelt desire to acquire the house in which his late son, Henry, tragically passed away, aiming to spend his final moments in the same space. The US star, known for his work in the acclaimed British sitcom Catastrophe, made this poignant revelation during an interview on BBC Radio 4‘s Desert Island Discs.

Following the devastating loss of Henry at the age of two due to a brain tumour, Delaney and his wife Leah welcomed another child, their fourth son, months later. Rob disclosed that Henry died in the very living room where their youngest son was subsequently born.

While no longer residing in the aforementioned house, Delaney expressed his deep-seated wish to purchase the property from the landlord, with the intention of experiencing his final moments in the same room that sheltered both heart-wrenching loss and new life.

The actor reminisced how the last family member Henry encountered was the news of their forthcoming child, conveying the importance of Henry knowing that their loving family was expanding, even in his absence.

Throughout the trying ordeal, Rob Delaney has been unwavering in his praise for the support received from the NHS during Henry’s illness and subsequent passing. He highlighted how London, where they’ve chosen to remain, holds profound significance due to the memories they cherish, especially those tied to Henry.

Delaney has also championed his more than two-decade journey of sobriety, tracing back to a fateful car accident that prompted his relinquishment of alcohol. The comedian, who early on garnered a following on Instagram, noted that his battle with alcoholism was deeply rooted in his family history.
