But she's now shared her news with her fans on Instagram alongside a picture of her cuddling her one-year-old daughter Rose.

"When Rose Found Out She’s Going To Have A… Sister," she captioned the shot.

"So excited to share with you that we are going to be saying hello to another darling daughter soon. Sisters.

"The boys are so excited. And the thought of Rose having a little sister as well as all of her amazing big brothers has filled our hearts."

Solomon, 33, said she had "the most incredible sisters in the world" herself and that they were her "everything".

"I’m so excited for the boys, Rose and our newest little girl," added the TV star.

Solomon is also mum to sons Zachary, 14, and Leighton, 10, who are from previous relationships.

She and Swash share Rose and three-year-old son Rex.

The pair had kept quiet about the fact they were expecting again and only shared it with their fans in December, when Solomon was already most of the way through the pregnancy.

Writing on Instagram, they said it had come as a surprise.

"So grateful & can not believe I’m saying this… Another little pickle is on the way…" Solomon wrote alongside of a clip of her and her pregnancy test.
