Jessica let her Instagram and Twitter followers in on a secret this morning… she’s expecting her second child!
Announcing the news on social media, Jess said she’s “so happy” to be welcoming the latest addition to their family.
Jessica and husband Andy already have a two-year-old son called Reggie, who is excited about becoming a big brother.
Posting a photo of Reggie holding a book called ‘I’m Going to be a Big Brother’, Jess revealed the happy news this morning.
“Another little Ennis-Hill on the way,” she wrote. Hundreds of fans from all over the world have been posting their messages of excitement and congratulations.
It’s been a busy six months for Jess, who announced her retirement from athletics in October 2016, before being made a Dame in the New Year’s Honours list.
And she’s showing little sign of slowing down. Jess is currently fronting a Blue Peter campaign to design a mascot for the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London, as well as being the face of VitalityMove, an initiative to help get the nation enjoying running.
She also recently released the first in a series of seven children’s books, Evie’s Magic Bracelet: The Silver Unicorn.
