Former Home and Away star Tessa James and NRL player Nate Myles are expecting their first child! After their wedding in 2011, the couple faced some hardships when Tessa was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2015.
The unsettling news had been revealed to the celebrity after numerous blood tests and scans because of a lump that appeared above her collarbone. Twelve months earlier Tessa’s father had been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. By the time Tessa was battling her own battle, her father had made a healthy recovery which encouraged and motivated Tessa.
A rocky road to recovery was the easy way to describe it as Tessa told Sydney Morning Herald, “I hit a point where I didn’t know what I was doing, why I was here, what was happening, where my life was going”.
Three years on from her ordeal and Tessa looks happier than ever! Confirmation that Tessa was five months pregnant came from her agent at the David Jones Spring/Summer fashion show in Sydney according to the Daily Telegraph. Tessa stunned a loose red Erdem Frock dress hiding away her growing baby bump.
