Jessie asked her fans, "Anyone else had Covid in 3rd trimester (opens in new tab) & had it hit them like a tonne of bricks for weeks?"

Jessie, who is now expecting her fourth baby with comedian Alfie Brown, has three children, seven-year-old son Donnie, four-year-old daughter Margot, and son Tenn, who she gave birth to in October of 2020.

The couple named their youngest son Abraham "Bam" Benjamin at first, but soon after announced that he had been renamed Tenn.

Tenn was three months old when he tested positive for the virus last January. He was admitted to the hospital and treated before being returned to his family.

Jessie explained that the strain her son was suffering from is extremely severe and contagious, advising her fans to remain cautious in the coming weeks.

At the time Jessie said, "Really didn't want this to be the start of my families new year. Really didn't want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth (opens in new tab)."
