The fiancée of a heartbroken soccer player who was killed by drunken thugs in a row of bars has revealed that she gave birth to his baby – eight months after his tragic death.
Kelly Bossons, 27, found out she was pregnant with her "miracle daughter" three weeks after the shock murder by partner Jordan Sinnott.
The football player, who played for Matlock Town FC of the Northern Premier League, was fatally knocked down in an attack triggered by the victim who agreed that one of his attackers was "fat and ginger".
The 25-year-old midfielder died in hospital on January 25 after suffering a fractured skull and brain damage in the attack in central Retford, Nottinghamshire.
But after months of grief over the loss of her fiancée, Kelly took to Facebook last month to share the good news – the birth of their baby daughter.
Kelly said she decided to name the "beautiful girl" Maisie Jordan Sinnott – in honor of her father who said "will always watch over us".
She said in the post: & # 39; Yesterday morning (September 28th) Maisie Jordan Sinnott was born.

"This is a far cry from the story me and your daddy had planned for you, but he will always watch over us. Our beautiful baby, how special you are. & # 39;
In an interview with The Mirror, the sales manager added, “Our miracle daughter was Jordan's gift to me. My heart breaks when I think about how much he would have loved her.
“He loved his family, my family, and wanted nothing more than to create our own.
"Now, thanks to the brutal jealousy of two thugs, I'm without the love of my life and Maisie will never meet her lovable, funny, kind father."
In July a court heard two men Mr. Sinnott, son of ex-Bradford and Crystal Palace star Lee Sinnott, aafter a & # 39; misplaced joke & # 39; in a bar.
Prosecutors said Kai Denovan was "immediately furious" after the footballer joined what he believed to be the defendant's "self-deprecating humor".
The 23-year-old Denovan quickly followed Mr. Sinnott and his two friends Ben Bossons and Adam Towlson to The Vine, Nottingham Crown Court heard.
The jury heard that the man told Mr. Sinnott that he was a "handsome boy" and would have no problem "pulling girls" – unlike him, who was "fat and ginger".
Cameron Matthews, 22, was sentenced to eight years and three months in prison at a trial in Nottingham Crown Court in July. But it was Kai Denovan, of Retford, found guilty of manslaughter after a trial – that sparked the attack, the judge said
"Yes, I can see that," replied Mr. Sinnott, which, according to the prosecutor, provoked the attack.
Nottingham Crown Court heard that Denovan's comment was an "intentional honey trap".
Denovan of Retford was found guilty of manslaughter after a trial in Nottingham Crown Court.
He was jailed for 11 years after Judge John Burgess told him he "played a leading role in the group".
He had made the "joke" and then threw the first punch during a previous incident in a pub when he made an exception to Mr. Sinnott's response.
After Mr. Sinnott and his friends moved away from further trouble, out of the pub and up the street, Denovan brought it to their attention and reignited the earlier violence.
"It was your grudge," said the judge.
The jury heard that Denovan "immediately fell into anger" after the footballer joined what Mr. Sinnott believed to be the defendant's "self-deprecating humor".

During Denovan's trial, the court heard that Cameron Matthews was "replacing" Denovan, who was "clearly looking for trouble" – and that Mr. Sinnott allegedly hit Mr. Sinnott twice in the face at the pub called The Vine.
Prosecutor Michael Auty QC told the jury that Mr. Sinnott was ready to apologize for the crime caused, but referred to Denovan, Matthews and a third man, Sean Nicholson, as "pack hunt and retribution".
Denovan caught Mr. Sinnott with a witness known as a "haymaker", but it was Matthews of Retford who dealt the fatal blows.
Matthews, 22, was imprisoned for eight years and three months after pleading guilty of manslaughter.
The third man, Nicholson, 22, of Retford, admitted to having an affair in connection with the street brawl and was jailed for 14 months.
