Jaimi Kenny dies: A heartbroken Fifi Box looks strained in Melbourne

A devastated Fifi Box emerged from her father's Melbourne home on Tuesday morning, just hours after learning of the death of Jaimi Kenny - the eldest daughter of her ex-partner Grant Kenny.

Despite ending her relationship with former Ironman Grant eight years ago, the radio host, 43, shared a close bond with Jaimi and is believed to be heartbroken over the 33-year-old's death on Monday from an unspecified illness.

A visibly strained Fifi walked out the house carrying her one-year-old daughter, Daisy Belle, on her hip as she was waved off by her father.

The sighting comes after Fifi pulled out of her breakfast radio show on Tuesday following news of Jaimi's passing.

Her absence was briefly alluded to on Fox FM's Fifi, Fev and Byron, with host Byron Cooke saying: 'Well, Fi is away today but the show must go on.'

Trying to lift the team's spirits, Brendan Fevola added: 'We're a team, we're one and one, we're going to mould into one and just nail it.

'If we're in the Titanic, I've got my arms around you. I'll carry you, bro.'

Fifi has a complicated relationship with Jaimi's family. 

She welcomed Trixie in 2013 after a fling with Jaimi's father, and despite their break-up remained close to Grant's children from his previous marriage to Lisa Curry: Jaimi, Morgan and Jett.

She hasn't commented publicly on Jaimi's death, but it's believed they were close.

Jaimi would even babysit her much 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 split by the time she welcomed daughter Beatrix 'Trixie' Belle via IVF in 2013.

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.

'Our hearts are completely broken. Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,' Lisa began her post, which was interspersed with pink floral emojis - an ode to Jaimi's 'love of flowers'.

Lisa continued: 'So loved. So beautiful. So kind to everyone... So painful. I can barely breathe.

'Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself. Her love of flowers, cooking, art, decorating, photography, babies, the beach, and helping others will always be remembered.

'Our hearts are broken and the pain is unbearable but we cherish every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured and so loved first child.'

Tragedy: Lisa's update comes after her ex-husband, Grant Kenny, announced that their 'caring and loving' daughter had died at Sunshine Coast University Hospital on Monday morning. The family hasn't disclosed the exact cause of death. Pictured: Lisa and Jaimi in an undated photo
