ACTRESS Leigh Arnold has revealed her heartache following the death of her newborn son.

The former 'Clinic' star said she was struggling to come to terms with the tragic loss of her son, Flynn Patrick Davies.

The little boy, her second child with fiance Steve Davies, died suddenly on May 17 – just over a fortnight after he was born.

The couple have another son, Hunter, aged one.

A statement released through a friend of the actress said: "Flynn was buried in a private ceremony in Dublin last week, which was attended by family and close friends.

"The family are absolutely devastated and request privacy and time to grieve."

Ms Arnold, who most recently featured in the TV3 drama 'Deception', is due to marry her English businessman partner later in the year.

She has also taken part in TV3's 'Celebrity Salon'.
