Ben Foden’s wife Jackie pregnant with their second child after miscarriage heartache

Ben Foden and his wife Jackie are expecting their second child

Ben Foden and his wife Jackie are expecting their second child after suffering multiple miscarriages.

The couple confirmed their joyous news in an interview with OK!

They said they’re thrilled to share that Jackie is in her second trimester.

“We’re so excited about a second baby. We’re using this as our grand announcement – we’ve only told those who are really close to us.”

The couple experienced three devastating miscarriages this year and nearly gave up hope.

However, Jackie discovered she was expecting again in April, but she was hesitant to share the news.

The mum said she was afraid of getting her hopes up again, but is finally ready to share the news with the world.

She said, “I kept getting excited about the pregnancies, but nothing stuck. After the third, we kept thinking, ‘We’ll see if it happens – if it does, it does and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t.”

Speaking about the losses they endured before this pregnancy, Jackie said it was so heartbreaking. She explained that they wanted to make sure everything was okay with this pregnancy before sharing the news.

“The first pregnancy got to around seven or eight weeks, and the others were much earlier, so that’s why we wanted to wait to make sure everything was OK with this one. Plus, with my age, a lot of things can go wrong.”

Ben and Jackie are already parents to a daughter named Farrah.

The sportsman also shares a son and a daughter with his ex-wife Una Healy.
