Huge congratulations are in order for Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon, as the couple are expecting a baby together. Yay!

Joe and Stacey confirmed the happy news on social media this morning (February 22), with former EastEnders star Joe joking that he was relieved to discover the real reason behind Stacey's relentless napping.

"Have been driving myself mad thinking that she’s bored senseless of me and can’t stand to be awake for longer than 10 minutes of my company," he wrote on Instagram.

"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. I can't begin to describe how happy we are to be able to share this wonderful news.

"We've been so blessed with 3 incredible children that we've had the privilege of raising and we are forever grateful to have the chance to become parents to another wonderful child. It's all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now."

Equally overwhelmed by the news, Stacey shared a photo of an ultrasound on Instagram, telling fans that she couldn't write without sobbing.

"Every time I go to write anything I sob so... what he said @realjoeswashy," the Loose Women star wrote.

Are you crying? We think we're crying.

Shortly after Joe and Stacey shared their joy online, Joe appeared on Good Morning Britain to give viewers a further update.

"We're really happy, really excited. Just blessed really," a, visibly thrilled Joe said. "[Stacey's] all good, she's excited".

Joe and Stacey first met when presenting the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! spin-off show Extra Camp together in 2016.
