Love Island star Jessica Hayes has revealed she is expecting a baby after suffering a tragic miscarriage.

The reality star, 30, who won the ITV show in 2015, announced she was pregnant today (Wednesday December, 27) on Instagram with an adorable video.

The clip showed pictures of her scan hung up on her Christmas tree like a bauble and her four-year-old son Presley cradling her blossoming bump.

She captioned the post: ‘Going into 2024 with the best gift ever ❤️ I think you all probably know what this means to me and how much I adore being a mum 🥰.

‘Truly blessed 🌈🤍 Excited for our future and to watch my darlings grow up together 🤍.’

The comments section was flooded with congratulatory messages including from Towie star Lauren Goodger, who wrote: ‘Excited for you 🤍 congratulations xx.’

Towie star Shelby Tribble added: ‘Congratulations ❤️❤️❤️.’

Jessica’s new arrival comes months after she opened up about suffering a devastating miscarriage on social media.

Beginning her lengthy caption with a trigger warning to alert followers to the upsetting content of her post, she said: ‘I debated posting it feels really strange to open up and feel vulnerable but you know I’m always open and honest with you all and it’s hard to pretend I’m ok as it’s been a rough week.

‘But I hope that someone going through the same this might help. I was pregnant and now I’m not.’

She revealed: ‘When you’re experiencing loss you have to pretend you are ok, wipe your tears and carry on because you have a little one, you cook dinner, you read the stories. You do the school run. Nothing stops.

‘It was a traumatic day when it happened which I wasn’t really expecting at all I tried to keep busy and go about my day went out which was a big mistake.

‘Rushed home panicked after last time (previous haemorrhage) convinced myself it might be happening again, so I was just happy to get out the other side’. 

The famous face also experienced a miscarriage in 2020, the same year she lost her other son Teddy at 19 weeks. 

Speaking about Teddy’s death on Instagram, she said at the time: ‘I’m so sorry I couldn’t keep you safe for a little while longer. I’m sorry I couldn’t take you home. I’m sorry we had to say goodbye this way it wasn’t supposed to be like this.

‘The pain is unbearable and I feel like I’m drowning in grief. My mind spinning thinking of all the what ifs and questions of who you would of grown up to be .

She also said: ‘You will always be our beautiful son and I promise you will hold the biggest place in our hearts forever my sweet angel.

‘I will make sure the world knows how special you are .. Until we Meet again my Teddy ..  Too special for this world. I love you now , forever and always .Your mummy, Daddy and big brother Presley.’
