Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash are expecting another baby!
As huge fans, we’re absolutely over the moon to share this wonderful news! On their announcement via Instagram, Stacey and Joe showed off their latest ultrasound scan photo of their incoming bundle of joy – the whole family looks blissfully happy!
Poignantly, Stacey then took to her Instagram stories to reveal the heartbreak behind their new pregnancy, revealing that this will be what is termed a ‘rainbow baby‘. Pass the tissues! 🌈
Stacey has revealed that she and Joe have heartbreakingly suffered through miscarriages before finally getting pregnant again – this new baby will be a younger sibling to Rex, two, who Stacey and Joe share, Zachary, thirteen and Leighton, nine from previous relationships, as well as fourteen year old Harry from Joe’s previous relationship.
Stacey’s Instagram story started with her hinting at some exciting news, writing: ‘Sorry I have been so quiet but we have something we are so excited to share with you I feel so nervous for so many reasons’.
Then, she uploaded a black and white video showing a previously done negative pregnancy test next to a bear-shaped flower arrangement captioned:
‘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 then went on to document her latest pregnancy, showing herself having an ultrasound scan and detailing how she let her sons know about their new sibling – it’s pretty emotional viewing, I definitely had a few tears for Stacey and Joe after watching!
Lots of love to Stacey, Joe and their lovely brood, from Team Bump, Baby & You!
We are SO excited to meet their new little pickle and very proud of them for sharing how difficult their conception journey has been – this sort of honesty and authenticity really helps so many of us who are going through the same thing away from the public spotlight.
