Congratulations are in order as Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash just announced that they are expecting their first child together.
The pair, who started dating in January 2016, shared their happy news on Instagram on Friday morning, and it seems like Joe and Stacey are overwhelmed by the news.
Sharing three pictures of his girlfriend snoozing in various locations around their family home, Joe hinted that the pair didn't know Stacey was pregnant.
He wrote: "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."
The former EastEnders actor added: "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."
And Stacey struggled to find the words to caption a baby scan photo she shared to Instagram as Joe announced their news.
"Every time I go to write anything I sob so... what he said @realjoeswashy," the Loose Women panellist echoed.
Congratulatory messages have poured in for Joe and Stacey from both their celebrity friends and adoring fans.
Spice Girl Emma Bunton exclaimed: "The most wonderful news, sending you all lots of love xxxx."
And Love Island doctor Alex George added: "Congratulations xxx."
Another fan of congratulated: "Best pregnancy announcement ever."
"Congratulations both. AMAZING NEWS for your whole family," declared somebody else.
The couple have three young children between them. Stacey had two sons, Zachary, 10, and Leighton, six, from previous relationships, and Joe shares 11-year-old Harry with Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey has previously spoken about starting a family with Joe. It's unclear how far along she is her in pregnancy, but most couples wait until the 12-week mark before announcing.
Congratulations again, Joe and Stacey!
