Clever ways Stacey Solomon hid pregnancy news until she was ready to announce

Pregnant Stacey Solomon sent her fans into a frenzy when she announced she was expecting another “little pickle” with fiance Joe Swash.

The star, 31, took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to share her sweet story with her 4.5 million followers in a series of photos and videos.

The Loose Women presenter revealed the couple had been trying “for a long time” following a number of miscarriages and shared a heartfelt letter with her fans.

Alongside a snap of her beautiful family, 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 exciting news sent fans into meltdown with many of Stacey’s followers asking how the TV personality managed to keep her pregnancy a secret.

The star is known for her quirky style and recently launched her second collection with In The Style, which fortuitously features a number of loose-fitting dresses.

Stacey has been seen wearing the frocks recently, which concealed her blossoming baby bump perfectly.

The owner of the company also congratulated the star on her pregnancy announcement saying he was pleased the secret was finally out, suggesting “little pickle” made an appearance at Stacey’s last shoot.

Stacey and fiance Joe moved into their ‘forever’ home in Essex earlier this year. The pile, which the pair have adorably named Pickle Cottage, is worth £1.2 million and has a number of spacious rooms fit for a growing family.

Speaking of rooms, the star dropped a huge hint in April when she revealed a secret fourth bedroom, which she said would be for another baby.

Showing off the space, she said: “Next door is another spare bedroom so if we are ever lucky enough to have any more Pickles then maybe this will be Pickle No4’s bedroom.”

Giving just enough away, Stacey quickly added: “If that ever happens, I dunno.”

Speaking earlier this year about the prospect of another child, the star replied coyly: “This is the most asked question of the day.

“We’d never say never – we feel so lucky and grateful to have four amazing children and it’s my favourite thing in the world being a mum, so who knows.”

Stacey is due to marry fiance Joe, 38, at the end of July in a ceremony at Pickle Cottage.
