The sweet caption accompanied an old photo of Delaney and his son, Henry. The infant lay in his father’s laps, wearing a red-colored striped onesie.

Delaney was sitting on the floor by a washing machine, dressed in a casual t-shirt and jeans outfit with his feet encased in socks and a mug by his side.

The comedian’s fans and followers took to the comment section to offer their condolences and well-wishes to him, while others who could relate with the loss of a child shared their experiences and offered comfort to one another.

Delaney and his wife, Leah, welcomed their fourth child together months after Henry’s death.

Little Henry died in January 2018 after battling with a brain tumor for almost all his life after he was diagnosed with the tumor in 2016. The little angel had received a series of medical treatments, and he underwent surgery all in hopes of nurturing him back to good health.

The cancer was aggressive and returned with a vengeance until it took the infant’s life. The actor shared the news of his son’s tragic death on Facebook:

“I have very sad news. My two and a half-year-old son Henry has passed away...”

He went on to describe how delightful Henry had been. The two-year-old was a vibrant and smart little boy, whose drive to live and connect with others around him was admirable.

Delaney is married to his wife, Leah, with whom he has two other sons. The actor also shared that his family had been dealing with their grief together. They shared a special love that astonished him endlessly.

He admitted that they were the only reason why he would try his best to remain sane and not go mad with grief. He did not want to miss out on their beautiful lives and the experiences they would get to share.

Seven months after Henry’s passing, Delaney and his wife, Leah, gave birth to their fourth kid together. Even with the joy of a new addition to their family, they still had to adjust to many firsts without Henry.

Life without Henry has been difficult for Delaney and his family, but slowly and surely, he has learned to control the waves of sadness that hit him, and with time, healing would come.
