Stacey Solomon announced she was expecting her fourth child with her fiancé Joe Swash on Wednesday.

The Loose Women star, who cleverly hid her pregnancy with sweeping dresses and filming tricks, shared a beautiful family photo to mark the special occasion as her son Leighton held her sonogram picture.

As the proud mum, 31, shared a sweet montage of the early days of her pregnancy on her Instagram stories, followers got to see a glimpse of her growing baby bump.

In the black and white video, her loyal legion of fans followed Stacey along as she attended her first scan which showed her tiny bump while she laid on the examination table.

Her partner Joe, 39, filmed the memorable moment as the couple got to see their unborn baby for the first time with their loud heartbeat heard in the background.

Stacey is currently mum to three beautiful boy, with Zachary, 13, and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships, and two year old Rex who she shares with Joe.

Joe, who admitted he "can't wait" for the new baby, is also father to his son Harry, 13, who he shares with ex fiancée Emma Sophocleous.

While Stacey hasn’t personally shared her due date, she’s believed to be around 13 weeks pregnant which would make her due early next year.

The couple are set to tie the knot at their sprawling £1.2million Essex mansion in July after they got engaged on Christmas Eve last year.

When the couple shared the happy news on social media they explained it hadn't been an easy journey – with 'quite a few' losses before she reached this point.

Stacey shared a photo of a negative pregnancy test, writing: “For a really long time we’ve been trying for another pickle … It didn’t work out and this was our news quite a few times …

“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 continued: “For a while now I’ve felt so yuck and even though I thought about what it felt like, I didn’t even want to go and check at first because well, just because, you know (I don’t even like to write it).

“But yesterday we went to check what was going on … And we were so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat my tummy …

She added how proud she was of her beautiful boys who are “already the most incredible brothers we could have ever imagined raising.”
