I had IVF at 18 so my late husband can live on

Pippin gave birth three months after her husband died.

At four years of age, Neinei Anderson just loves playing ‘Mums and Dads’.

‘It’s one of her favourite games,’ her mother Pippin tells New Idea.

But tragically, little Neinei never got to meet her own dad, Pippin’s late husband Jahmmin.

The 21-year-old passed away from aggressive bone cancer just three months before his longed-for daughter was born.

‘I can see so much of his in her,’ Pippin smiles. ‘She has my eyes, but everything else is Jahmmin. She tells me all the time that she looks like Dadda.’
