The Celebrity Big Brother star has announced she’s expecting her fourth child in a heartwarming post on Instagram.
Writing on the site, she said: “Well, it is the start of the New Year, so best to start It off with how I mean to go on! WITH GOOD NEWS!!! We have a little rainbow baby on the way #newblogpost
“Was a year of fun, sadness, change, laughter and love. 2018 is the year! Happy new year!”
Jessica had a devastating 2017 after losing her ex-boyfriend Alistair Eccles – the father of her three girls – to suicide in August, and she had a miscarriage with her beau Alex Daw in October.
The brunette beauty also shared the news on her blog, Motherofmaniacs.co.uk, and said: “All those questions of ‘Why’ from when I had miscarried prior, suddenly all made sense.
“Over the past few months, it is safe to say we have had a bloody storm and we were in need of a rainbow.”

“It made me stop and believe that this was our Rainbow. It made me question: ‘Did I have to lose that baby prior to help me to feel that a colourful and bright future is emerging from our recent darkness?’ Maybe.
Jessica also spoke of her sadness earlier this year at having a miscarriage, with The Apprentice star writing on her blog: “In the middle of all the sadness, we had been feeling as a family for the past couple of months, the universe (so I believed) had sent us the most precious gift. A baby…
“We started to get excited, choosing names, guessing what we would be having, downloading the ‘baby centre’ app to see what food the baby is the size of and starting to see some form of light at the end of the tunnel…
“A couple of weeks after finding out we were having a baby, I started with brown spotting. I instantly started to panic, then instantly started to GOOGLE THE S**T OUT OF THE INTERNET.
“I found out that this could be ‘Implantation or Breakthrough bleeding’, ‘perfectly normal’ or ‘the start of a miscarriage’…
“There was bright red blood. Instantly I freaked out, my heart started to race, panic set in knowing that if this was miscarriage then there is nothing that could be done, except let nature take its course and that there would be no baby. The miscarriage lasted three days. We did another test which came up ‘not-pregnant’. Just like that, it was gone.”
