Jake Quickenden targeted by sick trolls saying they hope his baby son DIES – one day after newborn's birth

JAKE Quickenden has shared his shock after being targeted by sick trolls saying that they hope his baby son dies – just one day after the newborn's birth.

The Sun exclusively revealed yesterday that the 32-year-old star had welcomed a little boy with partner Sophie Church.

Baby Leo Oliver was born in the early hours of Friday [26 February] morning, and proud Jake has since shared a series of videos and photos on social media.

But it didn't take long for the cruel abuse to start – which the singer has spoken out about.

He said: "I’ve had nasty tweets from people saying things like: ‘I hope the baby dies’.

"I get stupid s**t like that. If people start trolling Sophie or the baby a lot, that is something I will have to get my head around."

Jake added to the Daily Star: "Unfortunately that’s the world we live in. You can get 100,000 lovely messages, but you’ll remember one nasty one.

"You think: ‘Why would they say that?’. I understand if people don’t give a s**t about my life. But they don’t have to comment on it."

The former X Factor favourite previously announced on Instagram: "ITS A BOY! Meet Leo Oliver Quickenden.

“I am so overwhelmed right now, but first I want to say Sophie you’re amazing and watching you during all this made me love you even more, I already know you’re an amazing mum and cannot wait to raise this beautiful little baby with you!!

“I also have such a mixture of feelings, I’m so so happy but also feel a little sadness my dad and brother are not around to meet my baby!!

“I promise to be a great dad, I will make mistakes but promise I won’t make the same one twice, I will learn on the job like most parents and will do everything in my best interest for you. The most beautiful thing in the world.”

Jake chose the middle name Oliver to honour his late brother Ollie who passed away from cancer in 2012.

He and Sophie, who is mum to six-year-old Freddie from a previous relationship, will be documenting their pregnancy and parenthood journey for new MTV show Celebrity Bumps: Famous And Pregnant.

The couple, who started dating in 2018, previously spoke of their pain after Sophie suffered a miscarriage last year.

In an emotional interview the pair revealed how they helped each other handle the pain of losing a child, with Jake later opening up about his past experiences with grief after losing both his brother and dad to cancer.
