Fans were overjoyed to hear about Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash's pregnancy news, after the couple revealed they were expecting another little Pickle on Wednesday.

But when Stacey's Loose Women co-star Nadia Sawalha posted her congratulations to the couple, trolls were quick to hit out at the 56-year-old presenter for "making it all about her".

Under Stacey's pregnancy announcement on Instagram, Nadia wrote: "Phew! Have been praying it would stay a secret for as long as you wanted! Love you all."

And despite her positive and supportive message for Stacey and Joe, she was quickly criticised by a number of trolls.

One commented: "It's always about Nadia."

"We get it, you knew before everyone else," another added.

However, fans rushed to defend Nadia's comment, insisting she meant no malice by it.

"I think she's happy that Stacey got to announce it when she was ready rather than being forced to! She's just being a nice friend, why twist it? Blimey, happy news always gets tainted by someone," one supporter wrote.

A second added: "How nasty #bekind."

Stacey announced her happy news in an emotional Instagram post on Wednesday night, admitting the couple had been trying for a while but had experienced some devastating miscarriages.

Alongside a family photo, Stacey wrote: "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."

The Loose Women star said her and Joe had been trying for a while, but had been dealt some severe blows.

"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 explained.

Stacey shared the letter from doctors confirming she was pregnant once again.

"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 like to write it)," she wrote.

"But yesterday we went to check what was going on. And we were so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat in my tummy. We honestly couldn't believe it."
