Back in February, Jess admitted she went into “self-destruct mode” after losing Teddy, to try and make the pain “go away”.

Speaking to new! magazine, the reality star said: “My heart is shattered. These have been the hardest months of my life, without a doubt.”

“The early days were horrible. It was so hard to function. But Presley has helped me through it.”

Recalling the heartbreaking moment they lost Teddy, Jess explained: “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to see him. I didn’t know what to expect or what a baby looks like at 20 weeks…”

“In the end, I knew, of course I needed to see him. He was my son… That was the hardest thing in the world.”

“I think the hardest thing was seeing him so small but so perfect. He was like a little doll. Seeing your child and not being able to take them home is the worst thing in the world.”

“When it happened I was in self-destruct mode and just wanted the pain to go away. Now, it’s slowly getting better,” she said.

“I have a couple of days where I’ll be OK and then three days in a row where I won’t stop crying.”

“But I do think having Presley has been such a blessing. I have to get up for him, I can’t stay in bed or turn to alcohol.”

“I have to be a mum to him. I have a responsibility. I’m so grateful and I don’t know if I’d have got through it without him,” she admitted.

“I definitely want more children, I want a big family more than anything. I’m not giving up. I just need some time because I’m so traumatised… I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again. I’ll never forget or get over losing Teddy.”
