In turn, Joe shared a photo of Stacey sleeping on the sofa at their new home, writing: "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."

It’s all very overwhelming and emotional and we couldn’t be happier right now."

The 29-year-old recently dropped a huge hint that she wanted to have another baby, while Joe was away in Australia for I’m a Celebrity. After hearing that a cockroach had got stuck in Joe's ear during filming, the Loose Women panellist reposted a news story on Twitter about the incident, and wrote: "If that thing lays eggs and has babies with you before I do I'm gonna lose it @realjoeswash."
