The couple’s two-year-old son Lukas was a patient at the hospital after having trouble breathing when he was just 3 months old.

He was diagnosed with a rare condition that caused his breasts to grow unevenly.

He was admitted to the ICU before undergoing life-saving surgery to remove the tumor.

Heekyoung credits the hospital staff for her son’s recovery and ability to live life to the fullest.

She said: “Great Ormond Street Hospital saved my baby’s life, every single one of its staff was amazing and helped us through a very difficult time.

“Thanks to them, Lukas is now a healthy and happy boy, and we are extremely grateful. The work they do is important, they are superheroes in real life.”

Heekyoung watched the Omaze Million Pound House Draw on Instagram and bought a £25 bundle of tickets in June on the first day it opened.

She entered the draw to give back to the GOSH Charity Foundation because it is close to her and Tom’s hearts.

The lucky couple learned she had won when the Omaze team surprised them at their home.

Singer Carol and the message on the large cards, inspired by Love Actually, revealed Heekyoung had won the main prize.

The winner said: “We have always dreamed of owning a house like this.

“We used to live in a one-bed apartment in Wimbledon and used to pass by these houses to imagine what it would be like to live in one, and now we really do. Lukas choose your room.”

Heekyoung, originally from Seoul, Korea, and Tom from Malvern, Worcestershire, have been living in a four-bedroom house in Wallington, Sutton, Greater London for the past two years.

The family plans to move to the new dig as soon as possible but is also free to sell or rent out the home.

Her new home includes a large lounge, spacious living and dining room, family room and office, and an open plan living and dining space with kitchen.

There is also a large master bedroom complete with a dressing area and en suite bathroom, the other three bedrooms each have en suite bathrooms, a built-in double garage with interior doors and a stunning two-story garden.

The prize also includes £20,000 in cash and all legal fees paid. Omaze also donated £500,000 to GOSH Charity.

Louise Parkes, CEO of GOSH Charity, said the money could help fund research, medical equipment, support services for children and their families, or help rebuild and hospital refurbishment.

“Despite all the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, our mission remains the same: to help transform the lives of critically ill children who come to GOSH every day in need of life-saving care,” she said.

Entries are now available for a sixth house draw – worth £3.5m – to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The home has one master bedroom complete with its own dressing area and three other bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms.
