Jacqueline Jossa shares pride in daughter's achievement

The former soap actress is about to welcome a second child

Pregnant Jacqueline Jossa has revealed her and husband Dan Osborne's pride in daughter Ella's latest achievement.

The former EastEnders actress told fans she was "shocked" by how quickly Ella, three, has adapted to sleeping in her own bedroom and not getting out of bed until the morning.

Jacqueline, 25, shared a beautiful image of herself and Ella to Instagram, alongside a message expressing her "shock" that Ella had got into a new routine so quickly.

She told fans: "I am so proud of this little girl! She has fallen asleep in her own bed all by herself, with a goodnight kiss and cuddle and her new night light on in her room!"

Jacqueline continued: "She always shocks me! I really didn't think we would get there so quickly but she is always so brave and so helpful! She woke up really proud of herself today, the 4th night in a row now! Hopefully this is it!"

It's crazy how quickly they grow up and I am just loving every second of her.

After being asked for tips from fans, she said: "People asking how we did it, to be honest I just sort of tried it one night and said that 'mummy needed to get in the bath and then see to [our dog] Storm, would she be a big girl and help mummy out?'"

Jacqueline said Ella had been "happy to help" and she'd given the little girl a treat after she followed the routine for three nights in a row.

"It's crazy how quickly they grow up and I am just loving every second of her," she added.

"Don't get me wrong she has her moments!! Her moaning is getting a little worse recently but I think it's as she gets older she wants to keep herself busy, it's hard work. She loves her life and family so much, we are so so lucky."
