Stacey Solomon pregnant: Loose Women star expecting her first child


Pregnant Stacey Solomon broke down on Loose Women on Friday as she discussed her baby news, just hours after announced she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash, her third child overall and his second. 

Speaking about why they kept their news secret for so long, she said: ‘We felt it was important to keep it for ourselves until we felt really safe, and that first and foremost, we didn’t find out until a certain point… 

‘Then we had to let our family know, and then there’s that when you think it is the right time to tell people you kind of want to keep it just ours.’

In Joe’s announcement he posted a shot of expectant Stacey curled up on the sofa as he penned: ‘Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company…

‘So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby… 

‘I can’t begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news… We’ve been so blessed with 3 incredible children that we’ve had the privilege of raising…

In June last year, Stacey spoke about the prospect of having a baby as she said: ‘Realistically, I wouldn’t have a baby now, but I’m always broody…

‘I love newborn babies, I love pregnant women and thinking “aw, I love that feeling”, but I couldn’t possibly have another baby right now, it’s just not on the cards.’ 

Prior to this, she admitted her main concern was what was right for her boys and Joe’s son in regards to having more tots. 

She said: ‘We talk about it. Joe’s got his boy and I’ve got mine. The boys love Joe. It’s just doing what’s right for the children rather than what we selfishly want.’

Stacey has touched on the taboo of having different fathers to her kids, saying: ‘A lot of people make you feel bad about having different children to different people…

‘It doesn’t seem that bad, but it’s hard for people to digest and they think it’s unfair on the kids.’
