Stacey Solomon has revealed that she is pregnant with her fourth child after a devastating miscarriage.
The 31-year-old TV presenter shared her good news today with a photo with her three sons and fiancée Joe Swash — and a scan of the new arrivals.
The Loose Women star revealed they had been trying for a “long time” and shared a letter saying she had miscarried.
Along with the stunning family photo, 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 to me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle”
She also posted a series of clips to her Instagram stories – sharing her journey of becoming pregnant with her fans, including her tragic loss.
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: “Really long time we’ve been trying for another pickle. It didn’t work out and it was our news quite a few 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.”
Sharing her ultrasound on a screen, she said: “So we told the boys and we spent yesterday and today finishing Wendy’s House, ready to welcome a new pickle into our lives. Boys. We are so excited for all of you.”
He continued: “You are already the most incredible brother we could have ever imagined.”
Stacey is set to wed 38-year-old fiancé Joe in a ceremony at their new dream home in Essex in late July.
The couple, who have been together since 2015, had their first child – Rex – in May 2019.
She is also the mother of 12-year-old Zachary and eight-year-old Leighton, while Joe is the father of son Harry from a previous relationship.
The family was flooded with congratulatory messages from their fans and famous friends.
Cara De La Hoyde commented: “Congratulations to all of you ️❤️.”
Rochelle Humes wrote: “So on the moon for you “
While Candice Brown said: “ah congrats cutie xxx”
Speaking about the possibility of another baby earlier this year, Stacey said: “It’s the most asked question of the day.
“We’ll never say never – we feel so lucky and grateful to have four amazing kids and this is my favorite thing in the world, so who knows.
She continued: “We have no plans to make any more pickles, but we’ll never say never… we love being parents, it’s our greatest privilege so being able to do it again would be a dream “
The Loose Women panelists had their first son, Zachary, whose father is Dean Cox, as a young mother of 17 years old.
Her pregnancy was not planned and she didn’t realize she was pregnant until after the first trimester.
Her second son Leighton was born 4 years later, whose father is Aaron Burnham.
