Stacey Solomon has announced she is expecting her fifth child, sharing an adorable video to her social media platforms last night.

She described the baby news as ‘a huge surprise’ to her 5.4m-strong Instagram following.

The TV personality, who first found fame on the X Factor in 2009, married actor and TV presenter Joe Swash this summer in their back garden.

The pair already share two children, Rex, 3 and Rose, 1.

Stacey also has a 14-year-old son Zach, who she had when she was just 18 years old, and ten-year-old son Leighton.


Joe also has a 14-year-old son, Harry, from a previous relationship.

The pair met on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2010 but didn’t begin dating until 2015.


And now there’s ‘another little pickle’ on the way, with Stacey announcing the happy news on her Instagram and TikTok accounts last night.

The video was typically chaotic, showing her sitting in the bathroom holding a positive pregnancy test and asking Joe to come in.

He responds: “Are you having a poo?” as he opens the door, before asking: “What are you holding?”


Once the penny drops, the pair start laughing and Joe says: “You’re joking! This is the best news bubbah.”

She wrote: “So grateful and cannot believe I’m saying this… Another little pickle is on the way…

“A HUGE surprise, but one we are so thankful for. To the moon and back bub @realjoeswashy.”

The video on Instagram has already racked up more than a million likes and tens of thousands of well-wishes.

Molly-Mae Hague, who is also pregnant with her first child, said: “Oh how amazing, congratulations guys.”
