Stacey Solomon has left fans shocked after announcing her baby is due 'much sooner than we thought'.
The 33-year-old TV personality took to Instagram on Wednesday (28 December) to share the exciting announcement that she was expecting her fifth child.
Making the initial announcement, the TV personality posted a video of a positive pregnancy test, with her breaking the news to her husband Joe Swash.
During the heartwarming video, the star films her positive pregnancy test before calling for Swash to join her in the bathroom.

At the end of the clip, you can hear Swash saying 'this is the best news'.
Just a couple of days after breaking the big news, the Loose Women host has updated fans on her due date - and it's much sooner than many were expecting.
"Coming soon… Much sooner than we thought When we found out we still wanted to have that first few months you usually would to adjust and get excited and enjoy it to ourselves, but that didn’t leave us with very long left," she began.
"So this time next month we will be getting ready to say hello to a whole new pickle.
