Sharing a sweet family picture on social media with her sonogram scan, Stacey wrote in the caption: ‘We are growing another pickle. We’ve never felt so grateful… I have no words. We didn’t think we would get the chance.
‘We love you all to the moon and back. Lots of love From Me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle.’
On Thursday’s edition of Loose Women, Kaye, Jane Moore, Judi Love and Frankie Bridge celebrated Stacey’s amazing news, with the panel admitting their relief that they no longer have to keep her pregnancy a secret.
‘I personally am so glad because I almost let the cat out of the bag on so many occasions,’ Kaye said, as her co-stars laughed.
‘We can all breathe out now,’ Jane added. ‘We can all let our stomachs go, because we don’t have to keep it a secret any more.’
Frankie said that when she last saw Stacey, she asked her if she and Joe were thinking about having another baby.
‘She was like, “Yeah, we’d really quite like another one” – and she was probably pregnant!’ Frankie recalled.
Kaye added that Stacey will be appearing on Friday’s edition of Loose Women this week to speak more about her pregnancy.
Stacey is a mum to three sons and a stepmum to one child, Joe’s son, Harry, who is 13.
The former X-Factor star’s son Zach was born in March 2008, followed by Leighton in May 2012.
Stacey and Joe also share their two-year-old son Rex, born in May 2019.
When Stacey announced her latest pregnancy, she shared a series of pictures and videos on her Instagram Story explaining that she and Joe have been ‘trying for another pickle’.
‘We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys. It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so so so blessed already…’ she wrote.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
