Stacey Solomon has admitted she is an 'emotional wreck' as she returned to social media after making her pregnancy announcement.

The Loose Women star revealed to fans in an adorable montage of videos on Wednesday night, that she is expecting her fourth child, and second with fiancé Joe Swash.

Stacey told her followers that she and the former EastEnders actor had been 'trying for a really long time' to expand their family after moving to their forever home Pickle Cottage.

She even shared pictures of a negative pregnancy test, explaining, 'this was our news quite a few times'.

The mum also bravely revealed that she had miscarried a child at six weeks.

Stacey went on to say that after so much heartache she and Joe reluctantly went for a scan and were elated to be told they were expecting.

The parents then shared the sweet way they told their boys and made the news official by painting their kids' hand prints on a bench in their garden – making space for the new baby to add theirs.

After sharing her journey, Stacey took to Instagram to admit she had been moved to tears by all the supportive comments.

"Honestly your messages and comments are just so so beautiful," she said.

"I thought I'd be more together tonight but turns out I'm an emotional wreck….

"I'll try and answer some of your messages tomorrow goodnight, love you all to the moon and back."

Stacey accompanied the post with a picture of Joe giving her a tender kiss on the head as she beamed at the camera.

The pregnant star could also be seen clutching an ice lolly in her hand.

"These and tinned fruit are what I live off these days." she joked as she shared her cravings.

It's been a whirlwind few years for the couple who welcomed their first child together in May 2019.

Stacey has two sons, Zacheray and Leighton, from a previous relationship and Joe has Harry with his ex partner.

Before Christmas last year, Joe proposed to Stacey after a romantic walk in the woods near their home.

The pair are due to get married in their new abode – which they have dubbed Pickle Cottage – later on this year.

Craft-loving Stacey has been going full steam ahead with the wedding plans in recent weeks sharing some of her homemade decorations with fans on Instagram.
