‘We really thank you for all your condolences at this terribly sad time but ask for privacy as family whilst we grieve the loss of our beautiful baby boy.’
The couple announced they were expecting a second child last month.
Revealing his baby news to OK! magazine, Elliott revealed it felt as though his late father Elliott had ‘sent an angel’ to himself and Sadie with the pregnancy.
The couple, who tied the knot in a picturesque Bromley ceremony in 2017, are already parents to son Billie, two. Elliott is also dad to 14-year-old Elliott Jnr., and 12-year-old Olivia from his previous marriage.
Elliott shared: ‘I’ve probably had the worst year of my life and probably the worst I’m ever going to have.

‘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. I said to Sadie: “My dad sent us an angel”, we’re taking the positives out of that.
Elliott lost his father Edward Wright in March, who died at the age of 66 following an eight-week battle with Covid.
Elliott shared the news on Instagram and wrote: ‘It is with heart wrenching regret, that I have to post this post.
‘My father Edward George Wright passed away peacefully with his family by his side on the 02.03.2021 after bravely fighting Covid for 8 weeks…

‘For those who knew my father, you know what a great man he was, always smiling, always humble, always happy, despite the fact in his later years he bravely fought prostate cancer.
‘To Dad, what can I say that you don’t already know in heaven, you are and will always be my rock, my best friend, the man who taught me to always be a gentleman, to put family first!’
Just a month later, the grieving reality star was dealt another blow when his Marbella restaurant Olivia’s La Cala burned down in late April – in what Elliott believes was a targeted attack.
Weeks after the fire, Elliott revealed in May that his beloved boxer dog Poppy had passed away.

Informing his followers of his much-loved dog’s death, Elliott wrote: ‘R.I.P my little Poppy… you will be missed sorely. Up there with grandad now.. sleep well, thank you for being such a beautiful soul.’
In the heartfelt tribute Elliott, who appeared in TOWIE between 2010 and 2017, also shared a picture of the dog cuddling up with a young girl, believed to his eldest daughter Olivia, and captioned the picture with a series of red love hearts.
Elliott recently revealed he plans to reopen his restaurant in time for summer. Taking to Instagram last week to update his followers he admitted he had encountered a ‘few issues’ with the repair work.
Filming a video of the destroyed restaurant and a team of workers clearing the rubble on site, the reality star said: ‘I’d say it’s been a productive day but it’s difficult to be positive all the time. Been a few issues today.

‘One of my roofs need to come down, that’s gonna put me back a week, which is obviously very upsetting for me, but we’re all pushing on.
‘It’s a bad day today, to be honest with you. I’m trying to be positive, but at times it’s a bit tough.’
Trying to remain positive amid the difficult time, Elliott continued: ‘Tomorrow is a new day, I’m going to try and be positive and try and crack on.
‘Today doesn’t seem to be a good one but I can’t be good all the time, it’s going to be tough – I knew it wasn’t going to be easy.’
Elliott captioned the candid videos with: ‘Ups and downs… a bumpy road ahead… but please God we will get there.’

It comes after the former TOWIE star was seen surveying his burned down Marbella restaurant with a demolition team last month.
Elliott recently thanked fans for sending him ‘thousands’ of supportive messages after his restaurant was ripped apart by a devastating fire.
The blaze hit Olivia’s restaurant on Spain’s Costa Del Sol at 5.30am on Monday 26 April, just weeks after the celebrity’s father died from Covid-19 at the age of 66.
The video, taken by Elliott at the time, shows the devastated star walk through the restaurant near Marbella as he says ‘someone’s come and took my whole dream away’.

Spanish police officers have been charged with carrying out a ‘full investigation’ into the cause of the blaze, which the reality star has suggested was an arson attack carried out by a ‘scumbag’.
Speaking to supporters on Instagram, Elliott praised the huge response he had received from fans after revealing the shocking news.
‘I just want to do a little message to everybody that has been in touch with me since yesterday, since I asked for help,’ said the star.
‘Thousands upon thousands of messages, it is overwhelming the support you’ve all given me, I just want to say a massive thank you, it means a lot.’
Elliott however added that he was determined to rebuild the restaurant that had been his family’s ‘dream’ to have.
‘I’ve got a lot more energy today and I’m going to build it and really go for it and everyday is a good day and more of a challenge and I can’t wait. So thank you to everyone who has offered to help, I’ll try and make you proud, thank you very much.’
Spanish police have now opened an investigation into the blaze at Olivia’s La Cala restaurant near Marbella that is reported to have started at the entrance.
A Civil Guard spokesman said that there is not yet any evidence to suggest the fire was started deliberately, and the investigation has been ordered purely as a fact-finding mission.
