After Meghan Markle's announcement last week that she miscarried over the summer, reality TV star Jess Hayes has just revealed in a heart-wrenching post on instagram that she and fiancé Dan Lawry have lost their second child:
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 . When will I wake up. From this awful nightmare.
The post is accompanied by a picture of a teddy bear, fittingly as they had planned on naming their second child Teddy. The baby's footprints and handprints were laid out with the tag 'Baby Hayes', revealing that the baby had died on Monday 30 November at 4:53 in the morning and weighing less than half a pound.
Pregnancy reveal a week prior
This comes as a big shock to fans who, a week prior, had just received news from Hayes in a shoot with New! magazine that the reality TV star was expecting her second child. She explained in the interview that she was nearly three months gone before finding out she was expecting.
Comforting messages from fans and fellow Love Island contestants
Fans, friends and family were quick to send messages of condolences to the heart broken mother. And fellow Love Island stars were also there for support. Hannah Elizabeth wrote:
Love you all. Here for u always.
Season three winner Amber Davies also commented:
Thinking of you all Jess.
And Malin Anderson, whose baby daughter passed away last year after just a few weeks old, added:
I have no words. Sending you all my love and strength
