Early this morning Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash took to "Instagram" to share the happy news that they were expecting their first child together. The couple first met in 2010 when Stacey became the series 10 winner "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here," when Joe, who had won the series in 2008 was presenting the then named "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now."

However, it wasn't until 2015 that the couple got together and have since started a life together, moved in together and are now having their first baby together.

Joe who has son Harry, 11 from a previous relationship admitted that he felt that "This child is gonna kind of tie up the family," as Stacey also has sons Zachary, 10 and Leighton, 6 from two previous relationships.

Blessed and overwhelmed

Joe took to "Instagram" in a sweet post where he shared a series of photographs of Stacey sleeping, in part of his caption he wrote "Have been driving myself mad thinking she's bored senseless of me and can't stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes in my company..." before going on to write "So you can imagine my delight to find out that she still loves me and my company very much she's just been growing a baby."

After Joe's long and sincere post announcing the pregnancy, an emotional Stacey was hilariously mocked by her fellow "Loose Women" after she simply posted a picture of the scan photo with the caption "What he said."

In the past, Stacey has talked about having her two sons to two different fathers stating "A lot of people make you feel bad about having different children to different to different people...

it doesn't seem that bad, but it's hard for people to digest and they think its unfair on the kids."

But neither Joe nor Stacey are letting the fact that they have sons from previous relationships affect their happiness or willingness to have a baby together. Instead, they have seen the positives of the situation and are typical of modern and blended families today, where it is not uncommon to bring children from previous relationships to a new one.

Tie up the family

Hours after their announcement Stacey appeared on the Loose Women panel where she was joined by Joe and congratulated on their news. Joe telling the women "It's nice that the secret is out," going on to say that Stacey had told him not to tell anyone while she'd "Been telling everyone one," and joked that "I've kept the secret better than she has."

The couple were clearly happy with the news as the cried and laughed as they spoke about becoming parents together for the first time, "I'm so elated and excited" Stacey told everyone while Joe also repeated that he too was "Excited" about the baby.
