“Last year was such a tough year for Jake and me. It was the toughest year of our lives. I felt like I almost broke and, in fact, it’s still really raw,” she said. “But Jake was amazing. He let me sit with the pain, feel it and not be OK.”
The 35-year-old went on to say that 'everything crumbled' when they discovered the baby had no heartbeat at the first scan.
With just weeks before she meets her baby girl, Hawkins said she is ‘excited and grateful’.
'I feel so excited and so grateful just to be pregnant and feeling the kicks,’
'When we went to see the heartbeat scan for our little girl, it was the most incredible, overwhelming feeling because prior to that we were so scared.’
On the 10th of May, the Australian model made an announcement via social media that she was expecting her first child.
Taking to Instagram Jen wrote: “I’m sooo happy to share with you some exciting news! Jake and I are expecting a baby girl!!! We can’t wait to meet her!
“Thank you to our beautiful family and friends for their love and support and, most importantly, to my hubby Jake — I can’t wait to see you as a Daddy! @jakewwall xx”
