She included a lengthy caption, claiming she and Joe had had so many messages they were struggling to respond to them all.

“A rare moment where I’m awake,” she said—referencing Joe’s post announcing the pregnancy, which gently mocked Stacey for sleeping all the time.

“Just wanted to say we are so so grateful for all of the lovely messages we’ve received since sharing our news and each and every one means so much to us it really does.

“We are still trying to get through them all and reply back but we aren’t doing it very quickly, so thought we’d post a massive THANK YOU from all of us. We are so over the moon and excited and blown away by kindness.”

Joe first announced the news on his Instagram account on Friday, joking that he thought Stacey was so bored of him she’d started falling asleep all the time.

“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,” he said.

“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 and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child.

“It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now.”

“We just can’t wait for it to happen,” he said.
