    Jessie recently revealed on Instagram that her newborn son has been hospitalized with COVID-19.

    "Poor baby is covid positive," Jessie wrote after mentioning that she'd found out about the UK's latest lockdown restrictions while in the hospital room. "He’s okay and doing well but [his doctors] are being vigilant and cautious, thankfully."

    "This strain is super powerful and contagious so I do hope that people take extra care in the coming weeks. Really didn’t want this to be the start of my family's new year."

    "Really didn’t want to be back in a hospital so soon after his traumatic birth. Once again I’m in awe of nurses and doctors."

    Jessie went on to shoutout her brother and doctor who both work in Britain's NHS before asking followers to "please wish baby a speedy recovery."

    Will do.
