“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,” she said.

“Grateful doesn’t cut it. He has given me many of the best gifts of my life.”

She went on to say that her boyfriend “didn’t let go” of her hand throughout her time in hospital, adding: “I wouldn’t have been able to go through it without him.

"The calm to my crazy. The peace to my fear. The Daddy to my baby. thank you."

Chanan himself was quick to comment, writing on Instagram: “❤️❤️❤️ thanks baby! And what a 1st farthers day it was 🫂🙌🏾. And JEEEESH almost forgot hot you looked pregnant🥰🤤😍!”

This comes after Jessie opened up about having a C-section after finding out at the 40-week scan that her baby was the “completely wrong way around”.

Sharing a video of her dancing in the hospital, she said was ‘prepping for a natural birth’, ideally in a pool with no medication.

“I had a scan at a few days off of 40 weeks and he was completely the wrong way around and stuck as he was a little chunkier than your average and long,” she said.

“I did everything to try and turn him for two months but he said ‘Nah mum I wanna make an entrance out the roof, not the front door’.”

“I had a birth and it was everything I wanted because I got him at the end of it, that’s all that matters,” she concluded.
