The tears rolled down the cheeks of the well-known hairdresser Dennis Knudsen, who stood crying in St. Paul’s Church in Korsør to receive the many guests who came to say a final goodbye to his daughter, Naomi.
The little one-and-a-half-month-old girl died suddenly on the night of November 1.
While a strong wind in front of the church caused the flag to flutter violently at half-mast, the little white baby coffin could be seen at the end of the church’s flower-covered aisle.
Dennis Knudsen has allowed the press to come outside the church, but he wants the actual church ceremony, which began at 12.30, to remain private.
The official cause of death has not been announced, but Dennis Knudsen added the hashtag ‘cradle death’ in his first post about the tragic loss, which is why it is assumed that this may be the cause of the loss of Naomi.
The terrible loss is in stark contrast to the joy that the well-known hairdresser could tell about when he was expecting the two girls, Naomi and Aura, who were born in mid-September in the United States.
At that time, Dennis Knudsen was already the father of sons Lukas and Noah, and the birth of the two daughters was to complete his small family.
In an interview with BT, 58-year-old Dennis Knudsen explained that the reason he wanted to expand the family to four children, who he had with two different American surrogates, was to also secure the children – so they had each other if now something would happen to him:

“But if the children have each other, they can create their own family. It is in their interest that they get a family they can be with,’ explained Dennis Knudsen.
The loss of Naomi has affected the well-known hairdresser deeply.
On Instagram, he asked for peace to get through the difficult time.
‘We want (the whole family) peace and quiet to be in grief together,’ said Dennis Knudsen after the loss of Naomi.
Infant mortality can strike children before the age of one quite unexpectedly.
The cause of death can be difficult to determine when an autopsy or other examinations do not provide an explanation for the cause of death.
New recommendations that the child must sleep on its back, that the child does not sleep in the same bed as the parents, that the child does not get too hot at night, that the child’s anxiety must not be covered, avoid smoking during pregnancy and expose the child to tobacco smoke have significantly reduced the risk.
Sudden unexpected infant death mostly occurs between the ages of 2-4 months. 90% of cases occur before 6 months of age. Boys are affected more often than girls. Most cases occur in the winter.
