The 27-year-old, who won the first series of Love Island, announced last week that she was pregnant with her second child with fiancé Dan Lawey.

The certificate also shared that Teddy weighed less than half a pound.
Jess wrote: ‘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.
‘I look at the clock and count the hours of how old you are time is moving but your not here your not getting older it’s not fair . No first times , smiles or laughter . Why did this happen to us .
‘I wish I could of stared at your beautiful face a little while longer and held you in my arms forever . I look down at my empty stomach where you should still be growing safely and i feel so empty without you there no kicks no flutters ..
‘I could see Presley in you, you were so beautiful, perfectly formed. You would never get to play together and be best friends in this world and that hurts so much he would of loved you his little brother so much .
‘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..

Friends and fans shared their condolences in the comments section, including fellow islander Hannah Elizabeth, who wrote: ‘Love you all. Here for you always.’
Just a week ago, Jess confirmed to new! magazine that she was expecting with a pregnancy shoot, and explained that she was nearly three months gone when she found out she was pregnant.
She told the magazine: ‘It was completely unexpected! I’ve always said I wanted a big family. I’ve always had visions of being in a house with everyone round the table.
‘We were like, “Definitely, when Presley’s three,” so obviously it wasn’t planned, but we’re over the moon regardless. I’m still quite young and it’s nice to get it done early.’
Jess and Dan are also parents to son Presley, who turned one in June.
The reality star is best known for appearing on the first series of Love Island back in 2015, winning the series with Max Morley.
