Love Island star Jessica Hayes has revealed she has suffered a miscarriage at 19 weeks.
In an Instagram post, the reality star said she is “drowning in grief” over the loss of her baby son.
“To Our little teddy. I’m so sorry I couldn’t keep you safe for a little while longer,” she said. “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. “You were strong but my body wasn’t. 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 [have] grown up to be.”
The message was posted underneath a photo of a teddy bear and name tag reading: “Baby Hayes 30/11/[email protected]”
Hayes, who was crowned the joint-winner of Love Island in 2015, revealed she was pregnant with her second child in an interview last month.
In her Instagram post she wrote: “I’m grateful that we shared 19 weeks together and I carried you for as long as I could before it was your time to gain your wings…
“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.”
The star and fiancée Dan Lawry have a 17-month-old son, Presley.
