Jessica Cunningham is pregnant with her fourth child.

The former "Apprentice" contestant suffered tragedy last year when her former partner Alistar Eccles - with whom she has three daughters - took his own life, and she suffered a miscarriage one month later.

But now, the star has revealed she and her partner Alex Daw are officially expecting once again, as she dubbed their upcoming arrival as a "rainbow baby", which refers to good news following tragedy.

Jessica confirmed the news in an Instagram post, when she shared a snap of her family drawn in little pictures, with the last one featuring a baby inside a pregnant stomach.

She wrote: "Well, it is the start of the New Year, so best to start It off with how I mean to go on! WITH GOOD NEWS!!! We have a little rainbow baby on the way #newblogpost link in bio 2017 was a year of fun, sadness, change, laughter and love. 2018 is the year! Happy new year! (sic)"

And in a blog post also shared with her fans, the "Celebrity Big Brother" star reflected on her tumultuous 2017, which she said ended in the "best" way.

She wrote on Motherofmaniacs.co.uk: "I rekindled with an old flame and found my soul mate to whom I fell madly, truly and deeply in love with, I started a new career direction which is flourishing and enjoyable.

"Which leads me to the best part of 2017..... finding out I will be having a little rainbow baby this year! (sic)"

It comes after Jessica revealed she had suffered a miscarriage just weeks after Alistar took his own life, and said that whilst she was devastated by her loss, she only allowed herself to be "sad" for a little while because she needed to be strong for her daughters.

The 30-year-old star said: "I let myself feel sad, but not for long, because there were so many more reasons to smile. I smiled for my children, my relationship, our health, the roof over our heads, my family, friends and just being here."
