Pregnant star Stacey Solomon has shared a heartwarming message about being a mother on social media as she begins the journey of welcoming her fourth child into the world.
Pictured in a flowing white dress beneath a picturesque archway with her youngest child Rex, the 31-year-old opened up about what it means to her to be pregnant.
Captioning the snap of her cradling her bump, the Loose Women presenter wrote: “Growing all of you has been my favourite thing to do…Sorry for the soppy bump spam. I just feel so grateful.”
“I don’t want to miss a second of it… because it just all goes so fast and all of a sudden they’re teenagers,” she added.
Plus my hair was clean and I put a full face of make up on today so it would have been a shame to waste it. Happy Saturday everyone love you all lots and lots.”
Stacey is pregnant with her fourth child, with the happy couple already parents to two-year-old Rex Toby Francis Swash, who was born in May 2019, as well as three other children from previous relationships.
The former X Factor contestant became a mother for the first time at the age of 17 when she gave birth to her eldest child Zachary, 13 with her childhood sweetheart Dean Cox.
Four years later, the TV personality welcomed eight-year-old Leighton into the world with then-partner Aaron Barnham.
The reality TV duo and their blended family moved into their dream Essex manion, dubbed “Pickle Cottage”, earlier this year.
Stacey recently impressed fans as she transformed a part of her lavish home in just a matter of hours.
The pregnant star took to her Instagram account to show off her impressive DIY skills as she redocrated one of the walls in her living room one afternoon.
Donning wore an industrial-style face mask to protect herself from any of the paint fumes, the TV personality ordaned the wall with “cheap oak frames” and filled them with dried flowers, alongside an adorable watercolour painting of her 12-week scan photo.
“I decided to start with this little wall because I have no motivation at the moment so I thought I’d do something not too overwhelming and hope it might give me the inspiration to keep going,” Stacey told her followers as she showcased her progress.
“I can’t wait to carry on in here,” she added, as she revealed she had replaced the skirting boards too.
