Jacqueline Jossa’s sister Katrina has revealed their sad family history in a heartbreaking post.
Katrina is set to run the London Marathon in April, and said she is doing so in memory of their brothers who died.
The mum of three wrote on a Virgin Giving page that she is raising money for the Lullaby Trust, a charity that offers support for those that have lost babies.
“Some people know my families story and some will not but I hope it touches you all enough to understand how important this charity is for all of the families who have suffered a loss of a baby in this way.
“I personally lost two baby brothers, one due to cot death and the other was put down to cot death although he died in hospital due to an illness caused by lack of oxygen at birth.
“I was a young child at the time of these deaths. The devastation on my family has been clear to see and I can’t think of any challenge bigger or more fitting to show my love for the charity and my support to my family in moving forward.”

Former EastEnders actress Jacqueline, who is currently pregnant with her second child, retweeted Katrina’s message.
She continued: “This is a powerful motivation for me and I plan on smashing my target, so any help you could give to the cause would be greatly appreciated.”
She has already passed her target of £2,000.

Jacqueline and her husband Dan Osborne are set to welcome their second child together very soon.
Fans of the actress recently speculated that the 25 year old will be welcoming a baby girl after daughter Ella accidentally let the news slip.
Followers of the stunning brunette noticed the three year old girl referred to the unborn baby as a sister.
