“Nothing wrong with his second name but because of kids I want to have the same surname as the kids.”

Stacey revealed she is yet to be convinced, adding: “Maybe I will double-barrel it.”

In addition, Stacey wrote: “I can’t believe in a few months I’ll be a Mrs. With all of my boys by my side… Hopefully if all is safe and well to do so.”

Meanwhile, last month, Stacey detailed plans for the upcoming day.

She told Hello! magazine: “We’ve got four boys and they will all just be our page boys. We didn’t want to make one the best man or give one a special role. But I would like them all to walk me down the aisle with my dad.”

Elsewhere, Stacey also shared her fears that she might not be able to have the wedding exactly how she wants it.

She said that while the planning is going “really well”, she’s “trying to stay as positive as possible” because COVID could shut everything down.
