Jorgie Porter has announced that she’s pregnant with an incredible Instagram post, and it’s been flooded with support from celebs.
The actress, 34, best known for her role in Hollyoaks, made the announcement with a video that was captioned with a heart eyes emoji and the words: “Hopeful beginnings…”
It began by showing her fiancé Oliver Piotrowski’s hands being lifted up, followed by her own and then the couple’s dog’s to reveal her ultrasound scan.
Reacting to the news, the Hollyoaks official Instagram wrote: “THIS IS JUST BEAUTIFUL! Congratulations.”
Fellow actor Kiza Deen wrote: “Oh wow I’m so happy for you!!! Congratulations hun.”
Waterloo Road actress Chelsee Healey simply wrote: “Crying.”
Ashley James added: “Ahhhh I'm so so happy for you my love.”
Emily Burnett wrote: ”AHHHHHHH JORGIE SOOO HAPPY FOR YOU. Congratulations you beautiful lot!”
Samira Mighty replied: “Yes yes yessssss.”
Fellow Hollyoaks star Stephanie Waring wrote: “Jorgie you deserve this and so much more I’m bursting with smiles for you both!”
Porter’s happy news comes after the actress tragically miscarried quadruplets in August of last year.
She made the revelation in an interview with The Sun last November, where she revealed that despite falling pregnant with the four babies, she lost them when she was around 14 weeks pregnant.
The actress and her fiancé were given the devastating news that they’d lost the children at a scan and she explained that it came as a shock.
She said: “It didn’t make sense.
"I’d not had any sign that things weren’t OK. No pain or bleeding, I was getting bigger, my boobs were growing, I had so much hair on my body and I still felt pregnant.
"When the consultant performed the scan then said: ‘You’ve miscarried,’ I was in total shock.”
The actress said that while she and her partner were devastated by the subsequent loss of the quadruplets, she decided to share her story to help others.
“Miscarriage is still a taboo subject, but by speaking out, it’s a way of coping and helping other women realise that they’re not alone,” she said.
“Since it happened, a couple of women at work have had miscarriages and I’ve taken them aside and gone: ‘Me too. I get it.’ It’s OK to talk.”
If you or someone you know has been affected by a miscarriage, advice and support can be found through the Miscarriage Association.
