The new mum continued: “And then so often I think f--- it because life is short and don’t want to regret it. Once you open the door, you can’t close it.

“But… I met this man weeks after my miscarriage in 2021. Like a beam of light, he lit up my dark days. It was a whirlwind love and a miracle that we fell pregnant naturally with not one issue during.”

Jessie added that Chanan has ‘given me many of the best gifts of my life.’

She went on: “He didn’t let go of my hand this day and I wouldn’t have been able to go through it without him.
