Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have revealed they are expecting their second baby together with a sweet pregnancy announcement.
The Loose Women star, 31, who also has older sons Zach, 13, and Leighton, nine, as well as two-year-old Rex with fiancé Joe, shared a photo of the family holding up her baby scan to break the happy news.
She wrote: ‘We are growing another pickle. We’ve never felt so grateful… I have no words. We didn’t think we would get the chance.
‘We love you all to the moon and back. Lots of love From Me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle.’
Stacey also took to her Instagram story to add: ‘Sorry I’ve been so quiet… But we have something we are excited to share with you… I feel nervous for so many reasons.’
She then posted a video of a negative pregnancy test as well as a form reading ‘complete miscarriage’, adding: ‘For a really long time we have been trying for another pickle… It didn’t work out and this was our news quite a few times…
‘We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys. It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so so so blessed already…’
Stacey also revealed that she had been feeling unwell but didn’t want to check whether she was pregnant at first, but eventually went for a scan which showed there was a heartbeat.
The couple told their children that they were going to have a little brother or sister, and she shared sweet footage of them all working together to finish the playhouse in the garden of their new home, which they call ‘Pickle Cottage’.
As well as baby Rex, who Stacey and Joe share, Stacey has two older sons from previous relationships, while Joe also has a son called Harry, 13, with former fiancée Emma Sophocleous.
All of the boys were seen leaving purple hand prints with their names written underneath them on a picnic table for the playhouse, ready for their new sibling to enjoy.
