“We created an angel before heaven found him,” Kay wrote along with photos of pregnant women on Monday, August 22, on Instagram. “All you ever wanted was to be a father… I know that you will be the best of those at the top. I can’t believe I’m going to have to do this without you, but knowing that I’m going to have a piece of you keeps me going.”
She added: “I can’t wait to meet a man who is half you, half me. I love you forever, both of you.”
Kay included a past text message exchange with Webb about plans to become parents in the future. “I’m ready. Daddy,” she wrote. — You’re stuck with me.
Us Weekly confirmed last month that Webb, 22, fell and hit his head while swimming near Triangle Lake, Oregon, on July 13.

Kay paid tribute to her boyfriend, who was preparing to play his fifth and final season for the Oregon Ducks at the time.
“My best friend, my twin flame, the love of my life. I’ve never loved anything as much as you,” she wrote on Instagram on July 14. “You were everything to me, you gave me a purpose, you showed me what it’s like to be cherished, appreciated and seen for me. We had so many big plans. I do not know where to go next, but I know that you will look out for me, keeping me strong. You always put everyone above yourself, and I will try to keep the same kindness in my heart from this life to the next, baby, I love you so much and I will find you again.”
In addition to several of his Oregon Ducks teammates, Webb’s head coach Dan Lanning also spoke out after his death, tweeting: “So full of life at every moment of the day. Spencer will miss your smile and energy. I love you!”
