Stacey Solomon in tears as she shares pregnancy details with Loose Women

They are expecting their first baby together

| Updated:

Stacey Solomon was overcome with emotion as she opened up about having her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash.

Former EastEnders actor Joe appeared on Loose Women alongside Stacey and said he thinks the new addition will seal the bond the couple have with his son Harry, 11, and the presenter’s two kids Zachary, 10, and Leighton, six.

As she spoke about having another child, Stacey said she feels “privileged” to be having another baby.

Stacey said: “We felt it was important to keep it to ourselves until we felt really safe.

“We didn’t find out until a certain point then we had to let our family and children know and then even though, you know, it’s the right time but you think ‘I do want it to be just us for a while longer.’

“I’m so elated and excited and we really can’t believe we’ve been privileged to be able to have another baby.”

Meanwhile, Joe said: “We’ve both got children, two different lives going on sometimes so this child is going to tie up the family, my kid and yours are going to feel like part of a big family, it’s such a lovely family,we look after them now and they can look after us later.”

The couple announced their happy news on Instagram on Friday (22.02.19) and admitted they’re relieved the secret is finally out.

Joe added: “It’s brilliant, I’m really chuffed, it’s nice to have the secret out. We’re so excited. We’ve had to keep undercover so its nice we can breathe a little bit and let people know.”

However, the 37-year-old star admitted his 29-year-old girlfriend hadn’t stuck to their pact not to tell people about her pregnancy at first.

He said: “She put down the ground rules really early about what I could say but I bumped into Alison Hammond and she fave me a hug and said ‘Congratulations’, so she’s been telling everybody.

“I’ve told a few people that I know but I kept a secret a lot better.”

Joe announced the news in a very lengthy post on his social media accounts, with Stacey simply retweeting his messages because “words weren’t working” for her.

However, she admitted on the show: “I don’t know what to do, it was a long time ago.

“I don’t know what to say, it’s such a massive thing, I still can’t believe it’s happening to us, I don’t know what to say.”
