Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter announces pregnancy after losing quadruplets
Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter has announced that she and her fiance Oliver Piotrowski are expecting their first child together.
Celebrating "hopeful beginnings", the couple announced the happy news which comes after they revealed they had miscarried their quadruplets.
Only eight months ago, the couple miscarried their quadruplets at 14 weeks, saying at the time: "Losing the quads was so sad and painful but it absolutely cemented the feeling that I want to be a mum."
In a video shared this week, the actress shared a clip of her baby scan and captioned it simply with "hopeful beginnings."
The post goes on to show Jorgie, Oliver and his son from a previous relationship all removing their hands from on top of one another, as well as their dog's paws, to show the scan underneath.
