Elliott Wright says that his wife, Sadie, falling pregnant is like good news being sent from heaven after a year of distressing personal and professional news.
The 40-year-old reality star has had a tumultuous time of late – with his restaurant business in Spain burning to the ground at the hands of suspected arsonists in April.
While he suffered heartbreak in March when his father, Edward, tragically died following an eight-week battle with Covid-19.
Elliott and his 29-year-old model wife, Sadie – who have been married since 2017 – are now feeling positive and blessed as they have announced they are expecting their second child together.
