A cast member favourite on ITVBe's The Only Way Is Essex, Nanny Pat passed away at the age of 80 on 16th December 2015.
And in a new post shared to her Instagram on Thursday morning, the pregnant star, who recently enjoyed her honeymoon in Dubai with her new husband William Lee Kemp, pined for her late grandmother to meet her future child.
Alongside a sweet black and white illustration of Nanny Pat kissing her bump, Jess penned: "Our last chat together will always remain in my heart."
The brunette continued: "You were truly the best & taken too soon Nan. I wish you could meet my baby so much.
"Love you always my angel 6 years today," she concluded with an angel and red heart emojis.
