It comes after Stacey, who is now eight months pregnant took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce she was expecting baby number five, and her third child with husband Joe.

While explaining the reason she kept it a secret, she said: ‘We really wanted it to ourselves for the beginning bit, but we missed the beginning bit if that makes sense.

‘We didn’t have to keep it a secret for 8 months because we didn’t know for 8 months.

‘My periods were irregular from breastfeeding, we were planning a wedding then getting married, and then just crazy life and it honestly didn’t register.’
