In an Instagram post, the Walker family said Bridger’s world was “rocked” in 2016 when he met his younger sister after her birth.

“Since that moment, it was clear to use that there was a special bond between him and his sister.”
The family says from that moment, Bridger “rarely strays far from his little sister”, and describes him as “gregarious, always learning, so full of love and an absolute joy to have in our lives”.
