Taking to her Instagram Story, the mother-of-two wrote: “Thinking of all the heavenly babies that are so missed and too special for this earth.
“My brothers John and David, I am thinking of you tonight, wondering what life would have been like with two older brothers backing my corner every step of the way.
“I hope I make you proud. My brave mum and dad for continuing to power through life even when it’s so cruel.”
Jacqueline went on: “Thinking of my closest loved ones after several miscarriages, you know you are and I am thinking and praying extra hard tonight.
“Heaven has gained so many angels. Lighting a candle for you all.”
Jacqueline previously admitted that her brothers’ tragic passing made her anxious when she welcomed her own children, with the beauty mum to three-year-old Mia and six-year-old Ella.

When asked how the deaths affected her, the star said: “It makes me more nervous about everything.
“There’s no reason to think that would ever happen to me as there’s no hereditary link.
“But it’s such an awful thing to go through and I’ve seen how it has affected my mum.
“It’s hard not to worry when you have a baby. It’s a nerve-racking time.”
Jacqueline’s sister Katrina first opened up about the family losses in 2018, when she ran the London Marathon to for Lullaby Trust – a charity that supports grieving parents and offers research into unexpected infant deaths.
My brothers John and David, I am thinking of you tonight, wondering what life would have been like with two older brothers backing my corner every step of the way.
She wrote at the time: “I lost two baby brothers, one due to cot death and the other put down to cot death although he died in hospital due to an illness caused by lack of oxygen at birth. I was a young child at the time of these deaths.
“The devastation on my family has been clear to see and I can’t think of any challenge bigger or more fitting to show my love for the charity and my support to my family in moving forward.”
Jacqueline does not often speak about her brothers, but it was previously said that her parents’ strength is what spurred her on when competing on I’m A Celeb in 2019.
