Elliott Wright has said his late dad Eddie has “sent an angel” as he and wife Sadie announce their pregnancy news in an exclusive interview with OK!.
During the midst of the pandemic, Elliott’s grandparents, uncle Mark and father Eddie were all hospitalised with Covid.
Devastatingly, on 2 March his beloved dad lost his battle with the cruel illness and was laid to rest in a beautiful ceremony on 15 April. Just 11 days after his dad’s funeral, his Spanish restaurant, Olivia’s La Cala, burned down.
Now, Elliott, 40, has told OK! he’s trying to remain positive as he looks to the future and prepares for the new addition to his family.
“I’ve probably had the worst year of my life and probably the worst I’m ever going to have,” he said.
“At the start of this year I unfortunately lost my father and then my restaurant burned down 11 days after I buried my dad.
"I’ve always been a positive person and I’m trying to look at the positives."
Reflecting on the moment when he found out he is becoming a dad again, Elliott added: “I said to Sadie, ‘My dad sent us an angel.’ We’re taking the positives out of that.”
Opening up about her second pregnancy, Sadie, 29, said: “With the first one you don’t really know what to expect and the second time around you know what’s coming.
"We feel settled and content in our little family and we’re happy to welcome another baby.

“It’s felt like a time where we needed the good vibes and the positivity and it’s turned our year around.”
Elliott, who also recently shared his heartbreak after his dog died, added: “It’s something to look forward to now.
"It’s positive baby steps with rebuilding the restaurant and we’ve got the baby to look forward to. From a very dark tunnel, we’ve seen the light and are heading towards it.”
Their new baby will be a sibling for their two-year-old son Billy and Elliott’s children Elliott, 14, and 12-year-old Olivia from a previous relationship.
The timing proves bittersweet, as Elliott told OK!, because when he found out Sadie was pregnant, his first thought was of his late father.
“I thought, this is the first grandchild that’s not going to have met my dad, and that’s an upsetting thing for me,” he said. “But the next thought was, he sent this baby down.”
