Stacey Solomon feels 'unprepared' ahead of giving birth as nursery isn't ready

Stacey Solomon has admitted she's not fully prepared for the arrival of her fifth child later this year.

The mum-of-four confessed to fans on New Year's Day she hasn't sorted a room out for her unborn child just yet, despite being eight months pregnant and set to give birth in a matter of weeks.

Stacey caught up with her fans on yesterday, just days on from announcing she and husband Joe Swash will be welcoming their third child together into the world in a few weeks.

During a catch up Q&A with her Instagram followers, Loose Women star Stacey cleared up the confusion about how many months she went before realising she was pregnant – admitting she did find out late but she and Joe wanted to keep the news private for a while.

One of the star's fans then asked the crafty DIY guru if she and the former EastEnders actor have made a start on decorating a room for their unborn baby at their Essex mansion, Pickle Cottage.

"Noooo. I wish I had. We just haven't had the time..." Stacey began when replying to her fan on Sunday.

She went on to say: "But I know really baby will be in with us for the first year (or 15 if they're anything like the others) so I need to just not put too much pressure on myself to get things all together and sorted before baby comes."

Stacey shocked fans when she announced her latest pregnancy online last week – with the star currently eight-months pregnant and ready to give birth soon.

While the happy couple they haven't yet chosen names for their unborn child, Stacey revealed that Joe is keen to go with a traditional name.

"We've got no names. Like literally, nothing. We've had so many kids we've ran out of names," the mum-to-be confessed.

Shouting to Joe in the background she revealed he likes 'really old' names like Betty or Arthur, while Stacey confessed she's leaning towards floral or Hebrew names.

The latest addition to Stacey and Joe's brood will see their blended family feature six children.

After suffering tragic miscarriages, Stacey and Joe welcomed their second child together into the world on October 4 2021 – which is Stacey's birthday – and shared a beautiful photo of their newborn daughter next to a rose with their fans shortly after the birth – revealing her name, Rose.

The former X Factor finalist is also mum to son Rex, three with her new husband Joe, as well as Zachary, 13, and nine-year-old Leighton from previous relationships. Joe shares his eldest child Harry, 13, with ex-partner Emma Sophocleous; the former couple split shortly after Harry's birth.

Speaking with comedians Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe on their podcast in October last year, Stacey opened up about life at home in her Essex mansion Pickle Cottage with husband Joe, just over two months on from the pair tying the knot in the gardens of their beloved home.

"The blended family situation has been a rocky road," Stacey admitted. "That has never been easy."

"We have always had to work really hard to make sure everyone feels secure."
