Fifi Box has shared a heartbreaking tribute to Jaimi, the eldest daughter of her ex-partner Grant Kenny, who died on Monday at the age of 33, after secretly battling an eating disorder for years.
The radio host, who shared a close bond with Jaimi despite splitting from her father Grant eight years ago, posted a series of photos of her daughter Trixie with her older half-sister to Instagram.
‘The loss of such a beautiful loving sister and friend is suffocating. We laughed, we cried, we shared so many wonderful memories that I will keep alive for Trixie who loved her big sister so much, her little heart is broken,’ she wrote.

‘You loved Trixie with all your heart and she felt every inch of your love. With every tight squeezy cuddle your love poured into her,’ she added.
Fifi continued: ‘We were so blessed to have you in our lives. You were such a true and loyal friend, we love you so much and can’t bear the pain of you not being here.’
Jaimi was the older half-sister of Fifi’s child Trixie, whom she welcomed in 2013 after a brief relationship with Grant.
Despite splitting with Grant months before giving birth to Trixie, Fifi remained close to his children from his first marriage: Jaimi, Morgan and Jett.
Jaimi would even babysit her younger half-sister on occasion while single mum Fifi was at work.
Jaimi’s mother, three-time Olympian Lisa Curry, separated from Grant in 2009 after 23 years of marriage, before finalising their divorce in 2017.
Fifi and Grant dated for several months in 2012, but had broken up by the time she welcomed daughter Beatrix ‘Trixie’ Belle via IVF the following year.
She did not acknowledge Grant was Trixie’s father until 2016, when she shared a photo to Instagram of the retired athlete attending their child’s third birthday party.
In June 2019, Fifi welcomed another daughter, Daisy Belle, via IVF and an anonymous donor. The identity of Daisy’s father is not public knowledge.
