While Swash, a television host and former EastEnders actor, wrote a long and emotional passage, which included: “It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now.”
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… 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.

This will be Solomon’s third child and Swash’s second. Solomon has two children: Zachary, 10, with Dean Cox and Leighton, six, with Aaron Barham, and Swash has son Harry, 11, with Emma Sophocleous.
The couple met just minutes after Solomon won I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2010. Swash, who had won the series the year before, interviewed her on her victory in his spin-off show I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp.
But the pair didn’t start officially dating until six years later in 2016, and have been a couple ever since.
Solomon had dropped multiple hints on Loose Women and in magazine interviews that she was keen to have more children. She also dropped a huge hint while Swash was in the Aussie jungle last year.
When he had to have a cockroach surgically removed from his ear, Solomon tweeted: ‘If that thing lays eggs and has babies with you before I do I’m gonna lose it @realjoeswash.’

This Friday morning, Swash appeared on Good Morning Britain shortly after breaking the news on social media.
“I knew I had it in me!…We’re really happy, really excited. We just feel blessed… I’m well trained I’ll be fine, we’ll be fine it’ll be good. She’s all good she’s excited we just can’t wait for it to happen now,” Swash said.
Many of the couple’s celebrity friends have congratulated them across social media.
Emma Bunton wrote on Instagram: “The most wonderful news, sending you all lots of love” and Denise Van Outen congratulated them with: “Aw, amazing news!! Huge congrats to you all.”
