Jessica Hayes working through ‘dark times’ after loss of baby son at 19 weeks pregnant

JESSICA Hayes is working through 'dark times' after the loss of her baby son at 19 weeks pregnant.

Yesterday, the former Love Islander announced the tragic news on Instagram with a heartfelt poem.

Today, she took to the social media site to share a sketch of a woman with her hands over her face with an angel in front of them.

She wrote above it: "My angel always. Thank you for all your overwhelming messages of love and support, it means the world and is really us hope through this dark time.

"Those sharing their own grief gives me so much comfort.

"As a family we will rest and heal and come to terms with our loss and will somehow, someday be back stronger."

She continued: "Just so very grateful I get to say goodbye one last time and have the memories I have.

"I will share my story to you when I'm ready but for now just thank you all."

Yesterday, Jessica shared a heartbreaking poem which read: "To Our little Teddy 💔👼🏽
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."

A picture accompanied it showing a little teddy bear beside their son's tiny footprints.

While a handwritten tag showed that Teddy was delivered yesterday morning, weighing 183g.

Jess's poem continued: "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 .."

Jess, who is a mum to 17-month-old son Presley, said she could see a likeness between the brothers.

"I could see Presley in you, you were so beautiful, perfectly formed," she wrote.

"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..

"You will always be our beautiful son and I promise you will hold the biggest place in our hearts forever my sweet angel."
