Stacey Solomon and her partner Joe Swash announced last month they’re expecting their first child.
Both Stacey and Joe already have kids from previous relationships but this will be their first baby together.
And in a new interview, the Loose Women star has spilled the beans on how she broke the happy news to I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp presenter Joe – and how he reacted.
Stacey, 29, told The Sun’s Fabulous magazine that Joe thought she was joking when she first showed him the positive pregnancy test.
“He said: ‘But I haven’t seen you in ages!'” she revealed. “So, yeah, we were both quite shocked.”
The former X Factor singer was quick to point out that it was a nice shock, though.
“We were conscious that it’s what we wanted, but we weren’t specifically looking at a time for it to happen, so it was a really lovely surprise,” she continued. “He was over the moon and it was just lovely, actually.”
Stacey has two sons. Zachary, 10, from her relationship with Dean Cox, and Leighton, six, whose father is former fiancé Aaron Barnham.
Joe also has a boy – Harry, 11 – from his relationship with Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey admitted that her first reaction when discovering she was pregnant was that she’d like it to be a girl.
She told Fabulous: “But then I started to worry – what if it is? I don’t know girls! I know how to do boys. I’ve known boys for 11 years! And the boys are hoping for another little brother, because they’re at an age where they’re like: ‘Eugh, girls!'”
Stacey and Joe, who met in 2015, moved in together last September after dating for three years.
