Stacey Solomon announced her pregnancy last month, much to our excitement!
In a very frank and emotional post, Stacey revealed the heartrending struggle and losses she and partner Joe Swash have experienced in their attempt to give their sons a new sibling; 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. This means that their new arrival will be a rainbow baby, the name given to babies born after the loss of a sibling.
“‘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.’”
Today, Stacey and Joe revealed that their new addition will be… a baby GIRL!
We’re absolutely over the moon for the whole family – what a lucky little sister their new baby will be, with all of those protective big brothers looking out for her!
In a snap filled to the brim with shades of pink and lilac, Stacey and Joe ecstatically shared their joy with their fans on Stacey’s Instagram. Her close friend Mrs Hinch summed up our feelings perfectly with her comment; “crying again stace 😭😭💗 my heart is just smiling so much for you and your beautiful family. You deserve all of this and so much more. “Ron & Rex” “Lennie & Princess Pickle” bring it on mumma!! Xxx”
