Danniella Westbrook has suffered a miscarriage – and been inundated with messages of sympathy on Twitter.
The sad news was confirmed by the former EastEnders star’s agent at the weekend.
Danniella, 40, and boyfriend Tom, 24, were expecting their baby in January.
After the miscarriage, Daniella tweeted an emotional tribute to her partner: “@TomRichards89 thank u for just being u. Always putting me 1st & wiping my tears away x so blessed 2 call u mine x Love u Tommy xx.”
She was then inundated with messages of support from fans.
“Thank you all for your messages it means a lot to @TomRichards89 & myself. I’m being well looked after and given loads of love xx #ThankYou,” she tweeted in response.
Danniella split with her husband of 12 years in January and has been with 24-year-old cage fighter Tom Richards, for just 4 months.
She is already mum to Kai, 17, and 12-year-old Jody from her previous marriage.
