Congratulations are in order for former TOWIE star Mike Hassini, whose girlfriend Jessica Milford is pregnant with their first child nine months after he was released from prison.

Jessica announced the exciting news on her Instagram account when she shared a video showing a series of baby scan photos and Polaroid snaps showing Mike with his hands on her growing bump.

The post was captioned, “After every storm, there is always a rainbow... You truly are our dream come true. We are so excited for our new chapter as a mum and dad... Our happy ever after.”

The pair were congratulated in the comments section by a number of TOWIE stars past and present including Georgia Kousoulou and Ella Rae Wise.

Mike’s baby news comes nine months after he was released from prison after serving two years of his nearly seven-year sentence for supplying cocaine.

In 2021, three years after he was axed from TOWIE in a cast cull, Mike was charged with three drug-related offences, including intent to supply a class A drug.

Following his prison release, Mike is said to have “changed his perspective on life” and is looking forward to becoming a father.

“Becoming a father is everything Mike has ever wanted. Family has always been very important to him and knowing he's finally going to have a baby means the world to both him and Jessica,” a source told MailOnline.

“Going to prison massively changed his perspective on life and everything he wants to achieve, he knows how lucky he is to have a second chance and he's so appreciative of Jessica, who's stuck by him through thick and thin.”

Mike first joined the cast of TOWIE in 2015 alongside Kate Ferdinand (then known as Kate Wright) and appeared on the ITVBe show on and off until 2018.

During his time on the show, Mike’s storylines included a feud with Lewis Bloor over Nicole Bass and a romance with Chloe Meadows.
