Saffie would’ve celebrated her ninth birthday on Tuesday, July 4, according to the Manchester Evening News. In honor of that special day, Grande remembered her in a recent Instagram post.
“I love you Saffie, we’re [thinking] of you baby,” the singer wrote, adding a birthday cake emoji.
“All she could say to me was, ‘I’m sorry,’ and I said, ‘You’ve got nothing to be sorry for. You made Saffie so happy with what you do,’” he told the outlet.
Saffie had attended the Grande concert with her mother, Lisa, and 26-year-old sister, Ashlee Bromwich. Lisa reportedly had multiple surgeries as a result of the attack. She was also placed in a medically induced coma, but has since woken up and is said to be improving.
Andrew Roussos says the family is being “all strong for each other.”
