Tessa James Welcomes Child After Cancer Battle

Home & Away actress Tessa James has welcomed her first child with husband, former rugby player Nate Myles.

The 26-year-old announced the happy news on Instagram, posting a photo of her husband pushing a pram.

Captioning the post she wrote: “As soon as i saw you i knew a grand adventure was about to happen”.

Tessa was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 23 and described her pregnancy as a "miracle" in an interview with Elle Magazine.

"I think that ‘miracle’ has come from the media and not from something that I’ve said, but in saying that, being pregnant is a miracle because growing a baby, it’s pretty incredible when you think about it. When you haven’t had children and you see mums and kids everywhere you just think that’s normal. But when it happens to you, you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, all these women have done this? Wow."
