The happy news comes after a few upsetting early miscarriages in Hannah’s previous relationships.

“I feel very lucky that everything has been okay this time.”
Hannah’s also been through the ringer the last few years, after becoming seriously ill in 2013 following a boob job.
Fortunately, it seems she’s recovered well since having her implants removed, has taken up boxing to keep fit, and had a healthy pregnancy 💚
