Stacey Solomon's back on screen with her new season of Sort Your Life Out and fans of the Loose Women panellist want to know when she's due to give birth an even if Stacey Solomon has had her baby yet.

Stacey Solomon has been juggling the pre-spring clean-up and looking after her four children, all while awaiting the arrival of her new baby. Stacey, who is already a proud mum to sons Zachary ,14, Leighton, 10, and Rex, three, and daughter Rose, aged 14 months, announced on 28th December that she was pregnant with her fifth child - and third child with husband Joe Swash.

Sharing the surprising news on Instagram, the Loose Women star, 33, wrote, "Me + Him = [emojis of families] So grateful & can not believe I'm saying this… Another little pickle is on the way… A HUGE surprise, but one that we are so thankful for to the moon & back bub @realjoeswash."

And since then, Stacey revealed she is expecting a baby girl after she was asked by a fan, 'Do you know if you're having a boy or girl?', to which Stacey replied on an insta story, 'Soooooo many of you asking this. So...' and posted a story linking to the grid post below. Stacey said in a caption on her Instagram that "the  boys are so excited". 

The caption reads, "A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life" - a quote by Isadora James. She then added "I have the most incredible sisters in the world. They are my everything. I’m so excited for the boys, Rose and our newest little girl."

The upcoming arrival will make them a family of six as Joe also has son Harry, 15, from a previous relationship.

The news has shocked fans, not only because it wasn't too long since Stacey announced she was pregnant with her fourth child  who was born 14 months ago but because Stacey revealed she is almost at the END of her pregnancy and also recently told You Magazine that baby daughter Rose would be her last child. "We want to be the best parents we can," the busy mum explained, adding, "this is enough."

Now fans can't help wondering when to expect a major announcement.

But when is Stacey Solomon due to give birth to baby number five?

When is Stacey Solomon due to give birth?

Stacey Solomon’s due date is expected to be sometime in February as she revealed she is now eight months pregnant and she confirmed that she would like another 'home birth'. The exact due date has not been revealed but Stacey has dropped the biggest hint that the baby could be arriving imminently in her last Instagram post from Tuesday night. 

Fans have been sending her their best wishes, one fan wrote, "Thinking of you keep safe x" Another fan put, "
Good luck. Hope all goes well. Can't wait to hear that baby girl is here Xxx"

And a third fan added, "Keep checking for updates! Hope all is going smoothly."

While explaining the reason she kept the pregnancy a secret for a long time, she said: 'We really wanted it to ourselves for the beginning bit, but we missed the beginning bit if that makes sense. 

"We didn't have to keep it a secret for 8 months because we didn't know for eight months.

"My periods were irregular from breastfeeding, we were planning a wedding then getting married, and then just crazy life and it honestly didn't register."

While Stacey has not revealed her exact due date, she admitted during a recent interview on Lorraine show that she "could give birth any minute". As Lorraine Kelly wished her well, she added, "It could be any day now". To which Stacey replied, "Any minute! You could be delivering it Lorraine!"

Stacey also spoke about her baby blessing, telling viewers, "We're just so grateful, it was a surprise! We're so grateful we get the chance to do it again.

"We love being parents and we can't believe how lucky we've been."

We will update you when she shares the happy birth news. 

Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash previously welcomed a baby girl on October 5 2021. Coincidentally this is also Stacey's birthday, meaning the two will now share the special day.

At the time for her fourth birth, with daughter Rose, Stacey wrote on Instagram, "🤍 She’s Here 🤍 Born at Pickle Cottage on mummy’s birthday. Our little girl… Happy birthday my darling daughter… We all love you more than you could ever imagine. Your brothers, your daddy and I are so in love. Thank you for the most incredible 9 months. Now we cannot wait for the rest of our lives with you…🖤". 

Stacey has revealed that she is expecting another baby girl, and before her gender reveal she asked fans for baby name suggestions during an Instagram Q&A. She said, "Send help! We've got literally no names. We've had so many kids we've run out of names. Joe likes Betty... or Arthur. I don't know though, I really don't know."

The TV presenter added, "Any name suggestions welcome. Joe likes old-fashioned names, I'm floral or Hebrew."

According to The Mirror, during her pregnancy with Rose, Stacey took to Instagram Stories to apologise for being not quite so active on social media as she usually is.

At the time she said, "I feel like I'm really just rubbish at the moment. I remember when I used to be really good at Instagram and I used to have really good days whereas now I feel like I'm constantly chasing my tail and trying to get my work commitments in and be with the boys as much as possible.”

But this time round she's hidden her 'bump' under baggy outfits.

And unlike before when Stacey also went on to express her belief that she needs to “sort the house out”, reportedly adding, “and I know she's going to be here in eight or nine weeks so I just think, oh no, I've got to get so much done! But hopefully when she comes I'll just be able to chill and be myself."

Stacey is running out of time to even prepare a new nursery for the upcoming arrival.

One fan asked, "Have you started babies room at Pickle Cottage?"

To which she confessed, "No, I wish I had. We just haven't had time, but I know really baby will be in with us for the first year (or 15 if they are like the others).

"So I need to just not put too much pressure on myself and get things all together and sorted before the baby arrives."

She continued, "I've done absolutely nothing in terms of a nursery. Nothing, I feel really unorganised.

'I feel very behind but that's just me being silly because realistically they don't come out of your bed for like a year do they? They sleep in your room for like a year. 

'If you're anything like me and Joe they sleep in your room for like 15 years. So I've just got to get over it.

'If I can't start until the baby arrives, then I can't start until the baby arrives.'
