We were all emotional wrecks watching Stacey Solomon’s pregnancy announcement, and it turns out the mum-to-be is in the same boat.
The 31-year-old admitted that she was feeling very emotional after seeing the reaction to the news that she and fiancé Joe Swash are expecting their second child together.
After announcing on Instagram that she was pregnant after suffering several miscarriages, Stacey shared a selfie with Joe, who was placing a kiss on her forehead while she held a Calippo ice lolly.
The Loose Women panellist wrote: ‘Honestly your messages and comments. Are just so so beautiful 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.’
She added off her ice lolly: ‘PS these and tinned fruit are what I live off of these days.’

Joe, 39, also thanked his followers for their messages and wrote on his Instagram story: ‘Thank you for all your kind messages. I love Stace and our boys so much. I honestly can’t wait.’
‘I already love you so much little one…’
Joe is already dad to Harry, 13, with former fiancée Emma Sophocleous, while Stacey is mum to Zachary, 13, from her relationship with Dean Cox, and Leighton, nine, from her relationship with Aaron Barham.
Stacey and Joe, who got engaged last Christmas, welcomed their first child together, son Rex, in May 2019.
Their baby news came as a surprise to fans, but Stacey’s colleagues have known for a while, and one of them nearly let the secret slip.
On today’s edition of Loose Women, Kaye Adams joked: ‘I personally am so glad because I almost let the cat out of the bag on so many occasions.’
Jane Moore added: ‘We can all breathe out now. We can all let our stomachs go, because we don’t have to keep it a secret any more.’
Stacey wasn’t on the ITV show today, but will be on Friday’s edition to talk about her pregnancy.
The former X Factor star also promised to answer some of her followers’ questions on social media.
Stacey and Joe have been together since early 2016, and recently moved into their ‘forever home’ with Zachary, Leighton and Rex.
The pair are planning to tie the knot in July.
