Pregnant Jacqueline Jossa has spoken out about the state of her marriage to Dan Osborne.
Rumours have been swirling for weeks that the couple are going through a rocky patch, just weeks before Jacqueline gives birth to their second child.
In a new interview with The Mirror, former EastEnders actress Jacqueline, 25, said she is remaining calm and won’t let the current situation stress her out.
She said: “These things happen. Marriages have ups and downs and mine’s no different. He’ll be at the birth, of course. He’s an amazing dad.”
Jacqueline and ex-TOWIE star Dan, 26, are already parents to three-year-old daughter Ella.
Dan also has son Teddy, four, from a previous relationship.
Jacqueline added to the newspaper that she’s “pretty good at not getting stressed”, saying: “Maybe I’ve just got a really thick skin but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, I get on with things and stay calm.”
The soap star hasn’t given any in-depth interviews about what may have sparked the rocky patch, despite plenty of rumours swirling.
She previously told OK! magazine: “People shouldn’t jump to any conclusions and I’m in the last few weeks of my pregnancy so I don’t need the stress.”
And appearing on Loose Women, she said: “I’m good, honestly I am fine. I think when stuff goes on at home it’s not normal to be everywhere, and also it’s not necessarily true or the reasons why you’re not getting on at the moment.”
Jacqueline also tweeted: “No one needs to comment and get involved in things they don’t know anything about. Daniel and I are dealing with things privately as a team.”
Dan was quoted last week saying he’d left the marital home after a series of rows, but he later denied giving any interview.
He previously slammed allegations the rocky patch was as a result of him working abroad, after claims his recent fitness bootcamp with pals in Marbella had been the issue.
Whatever is going on in their marriage, the pair are keeping it to themselves… but hitting out whenever they see inaccurate reports.
Last week, Dan commented on claims Jacqueline had been pictured out without her wedding ring, tweeting: “Jacqueline doesn’t have a ring on in these pictures because these pictures are about 3 years old.. we wasn’t even engaged then, let alone married.”
Jacqueline then jokingly responded to Dan: “My shoes are amazing though!”
