Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash have announced they’re pregnant with their first baby!
The happy couple are expecting their first child together after meeting on I’m A Celebrity.
Joe, 37, announced the happy news, sharing pictures of his girlfriend, 29, sleeping at home surrounded by their pets.
He captioned the intimate pictures: "Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company… So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she’s just been growing a baby.
"I can’t begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news. We’ve been so blessed with 3 incredible children that we’ve had the privilege of raising and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child. It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now."
Stacey wrote on Instagram : "Every time I go to write anything I sob so… what he said."
Celebrity friends of the couple, who have been together for three years, rushed to congratulate the pair on the new addition to the family with Emma Bunton writing: "The most wonderful news, sending you all lots of love."
Davina McCall congratulated Joe and Stacey: "Awww Stacey! I’m so happy for you two!"
Ex-TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenbergh wrote: "Congratulations!"
Denise Van Outen offered her best wishes for the pair: "Aw, amazing news!! Huge congrats to you all."
Joe and Stacey first met in 2010 after Stacey won the series back in 2010 and was crowned jungle queen, they then presented I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp together.
After three years of dating the pair moved in together in October with Stacey’s two sons Zachary,10, and Leighton, six, while Joe has 11-year-old son Harry from a previous relationship with actress Kara Tointon.
The couple have most recently been fending off engagement rumours, with Stacey insisting that she didn’t need a piece of paper to show how committed she was to Joe.
"I totally appreciate that some people want to get married," she said, "but I don’t think that it adds something to your relationship but I personally don’t think that it would add anything to my relationship."
She added: "In my opinion, it’s a piece of paper. If you’re religious or you have real ties to marriage and it does really mean something to you I get that.
"I think for me and Joe I honestly wouldn’t see any difference in our love for each other, whether we had a marriage certificate or not."
He complained during an appearance on Loose Women for a Valentine’s Day special that the couple’s sex life had taken a nose dive.
Joe worried that he loved Stacey more than she loved him adding he hadn’t had a "treat in weeks", but it appears the reason for her disinterest in sex was their surprise news.
Fans thought that Joe had popped the question with a special breakfast in bed on Valentine’s Day, after he posted a snap of on his Instagram page alongside a gushing love note.
In the snap she is laid smiling in bed with her two sons by her side along with a feast of eggs, bacon, salmon and bagels – but her left hand is conveniently hidden underneath the covers.
Plenty of Joe’s fans took to his comments urging the presenter to put a ring on his girlfriend’s finger as he wrote: "Happy Valentines day to the most amazing.beautiful.kind.loving.and sexy girlfriend in the world."
