Stacey Solomon has bravely revealed that she had “a few miscarriages” in the year since she opened up about her devastating loss before becoming pregnant.
The 31-year-old TV presenter announced the good news last night that she is expecting her fourth child.
Today fans are asking all kinds of questions about her pregnancy in an Instagram Q&A.
Stacy has revealed that she has postponed her wedding, gave a glimpse of the baby’s nursery and admitted that she is “100% going to find out” the gender of her unborn child.
One of her followers took the time to thank her for being so open and honest about her struggles with getting pregnant.
The fan wrote: “Thank you for sharing about your last loss. I’ve been through this too and you’re giving me hope.”
Stacey replied: “A lot of you are messaging this.. It’s kind of comforting because knowing so many people have had the same experience makes you feel less alone.. .
“But it’s also sad because, you know, anything you say or do will take away from how exhausting and heartbreaking those experiences are.
“Thinking of all of you and I feel so grateful.”
The mother of three explained that this was not the first time this had happened.
Stacey continued: “We’ve experienced it a few times over the past year and a little and it’s a sinking feeling. (A year is not a long time I read many other experiences).
“Many of you have been trying for years and years. Keep going if you can and you want to.
“But honestly it’s heartbreaking. Love you all to the moon and back.”
Stacey shared her good news with a photo with her three sons and fiancée Joe Swash — and a scan of the new arrival.
The Loose Women star revealed she had been trying for a “long time” and shared a letter saying she had miscarried.
Along with the fabulous family snap, she wrote: “We’re growing another pickle. We’ve never felt so grateful… I have no words.
“We didn’t think we’d 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 pickles.”
She also posted a series of clips to her Instagram stories – including her tragic loss, sharing her journey to becoming pregnant with her fans.
The former X Factor star began: “Sorry I’ve been so quiet but we have something we’re so excited to share with you, I feel so nervous for a variety of reasons.”
The next clip was a black and white video of a negative pregnancy test with a floral teddy bear.
Stacy wrote: “We’ve been trying for another pickle for a really long time. It didn’t work out and it was our news several times.
“We decided we were already so lucky to have our boys. It’s our greatest privilege in life and we’re so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and found ourselves so blessed. “
Then she showed me a letter confirming her pregnancy, as she continued: “I’ve been feeling really bad for a while now and even though I thought what it felt like I didn’t even want to go check it out at first because okay , simply because you know (I don’t like writing it).
“But yesterday we went to check what was going on. And we were so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat in our stomachs. We honestly couldn’t believe it.”
Stacey shares her two-year-old son, Rex, with fiancé Joe, who have been together since 2015.
She is also the mother of 12-year-old Zachary and eight-year-old Leighton.
