Days later, Stacey appeared to confirm she was pregnant at her wedding to Joe as she revealed she’s just weeks away from giving birth.

The Sort Your Life Out host and actor Joe said ‘I do’ in July last year at their Essex home dubbed Pickle Cottage.

And Stacey – who recently dropped a hint about the baby’s gender – joked that her fans could have told her she was expecting when they saw pictures of her at her nuptials and thought they spotted a bump, as she revealed she’d found out she was pregnant much later than expected.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘For those saying you knew when we got married, well you could have let us know Poirot!’ 

Remarking on how the singer looked at her wedding, one person commented: ‘Stacey was definitely pregnant four months ago when they got married, her stomach was very pregnant.’

‘@staceysolomon huge congratulations – I didn’t know obviously but I did say to my husband that I thought you were pregnant – looking radiantly gorgeous,’ wrote someone else.

Someone else shared: ‘@staceysolomon yep!! I’ve been saying it for months now…I Kew you were very far along as the ‘bump’ had a way of showing itself lol.’
