Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash made their first TV appearance since making their pregnancy announcement on Friday, and the Loose Women panellist was overcome with emotion as she discussed the happy news with her co-stars.
Appearing on the ITV chat show just hours after the pregnancy was unveiled to fans, Stacey was surprised by her boyfriend on-stage.
"I am so elated and excited," she said. "We really can't believe we are privileged to have another child."
Brushing away happy tears, Stacey continued: "I honestly don't know what to say, it's almost, I'm almost coming to terms with it, it's such a massive thing and I still haven't quite come to terms with it, so it's like I don't really know what to say!"
She then added: "We felt it was important to keep it to ourselves until we felt really safe. We didn't find out till a certain point, then we had to let our family and our children know, then there is that part of you that even though you are ready and know it is the right time to tell people, you still think, I do want it to be just ours for a little while longer!"
Stacey has two sons from previous relationships, Zachary, 10, and six-year-old Leighton. Joe shares 11-year-old Harry with Emma Sophocleous.
Joe then added: "I'm really chuffed, so happy to have the secret out, it's been so long and we are so excited. We've had to keep it undercover, so now it's nice we can breathe and let people know.
"This child is going to tie up the family, so my kid and your kids are both going to feel they are part of this whole big family. I'm so chuffed."
The Loose Women panellists also presented the couple with a huge bunch of flowers and a babygrow, with the words 'Congratulations Stacey and Joe' printed across the front.
Fellow host Host Kaye Adams also read out Joe's sweet Instagram announcement to viewers and the studio audience.
The touching message read: "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."
Congratulations again, Joe and Stacey.
