Is it teething time for your little one?
Stacey Solomon explains why she wanted to keep pregnancy news private

Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash were overjoyed to reveal that they were expecting their first child together last week. The doting pair were showered with loving messages from fans once they made the news public.

It’s evident that both Stacey and Joe were overwhelmed by all of the support they received with the Loose Women panellist admitting they were blown away by the kindness.

However, the mum admitted that she was nervous about sharing the big news. She opened up about deciding to go public with her pregnancy during an episode of Loose Women.

Stacey said: “We felt it was important to keep it to ourselves until we felt really safe, that was first and foremost.”

The mum said despite the fact that she knew their baby was safe and sound, she was still anxious about putting the news out there.

The soon-to-be mum-of-three admitted that she wanted to keep it a secret between her and her longterm beau Joe.

She shared: “Even when you’re ready and you know it’s the right time to tell people, you still think, ‘Aww, I do just want it to be ours a little longer’.”

Joe, who is already a dad to 11-year-old Harry, said he was “chuffed” when they revealed Stacey was expecting.

“It’s brilliant, I’m really chuffed – it’s just nice to have the secret out. It’s been quiet for so long, we’re so excited,” the presenter gushed.

Stacey is already a mum to two boys, 10-year-old Zachary and six-year-old Leighton, who are going to be the greatest big brothers.

We are so excited for the former X Factor star to welcome her third tiny tot into the world.
