She added a photo of her family gathered in her kitchen with a painting of David seen hanging pride of place.

‘Beautiful day celebrating dads birthday with the family. Special thank you to @artistweza for the amazing painting. It has brought us so much joy,’ she wrote.

A spokesperson for the actress confirmed David’s death, saying he passed away peacefully at home.

Shortly after, Kym took to Instagram to share a touching tribute to her late father. She wrote: ‘For the first time in my life….I have no words. I love you dad. Always and forever. Rest easy Pops. Goodnight godbless.’ 

Kym recently revealed she is going to bury her son Archie’s ashes with her late father David, explaining her reasons during an emotional interview on BBC‘s Morning Live.

The actress, 47, and her now ex-husband Jamie Lomas, 48, were left heartbroken when their child passed away at just 21 weeks following a premature birth in February 2009.

Kym, whose father died in January aged 78 following a battle with prostate cancer, is doing the burial when she receives David’s ashes.

The Coronation Street star shared that she and ex Jamie mutually agreed on the burial shortly after the 15th anniversary of Archie’s death.

Speaking to co-hosts Gethin Jones and Helen Skelton, Kym said: ‘Archie would have been 15, we’ve just celebrated his birthday on February 11.

‘When we found out that dad was going to sadly pass away… I had Archie’s ashes with me ever since the day that we got them because I always felt like it wasn’t the right thing to do [a burial].

‘Because I didn’t get to know what kind of little boy he was or where he would like to go or what he would have liked to do and because I move around so much, I couldn’t really put them anywhere. 

‘And we decided both Jamie and I that we would let Archie rest with my dad. So when my dads ashes come back we are going to lay Archie to rest with my dad.’

Gethin gushed: ‘Your dad will absolutely love that.’

Kym added: ‘Yeah he will, he will indeed. I mean I saw dad at Christmas and Archie [ashes] was there too, I took him to my daughters at Christmas.

‘And my dad said that day, he put his hand on the box and said ‘are you ready to go on our journey mate’, so dad got a lot of comfort in it and I know now he is up there eating ice cream with him.’
