In November 2021, Jessie confirmed that she had suffered the loss of a pregnancy after deciding to have a baby "on her own". 

Sharing details of the awful experience, Jessie said, "The sadness is overwhelming," but added, "I know I am strong, and I know I will be okay."

Jessie continued, "I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it's all I've ever wanted and life is short. 

"To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again."

Jessie touched on the loss of her pregnancy when she appeared on Steven Bartlett's Diary of a CEO, recalling the moment she was told that her baby had no heartbeat.

She said, "I felt like I’d been given everything I’d ever wanted and then someone had gone: 'But you can’t have it.' I’ve never felt so lonely in my life."
