Stacey Solomon's fans have been quick to congratulate the TV star after she announced that she's currently expecting her fifth child, but some were a bit more shocked by the news than others.
Some of Stacey's more eagle-eyed followers had noticed some of the strategic ways she had been keeping her bump hidden while posting photos to her Instagram page.
From wearing baggy tops to strategically placing her kids in front of her, the soon to be mum-of-five had kept the news from coming out before she was ready, but had not stopped fans from speculating about what was happening.
After Stacey posted about exciting news, some fans quickly let her know that they'd been eagerly awaiting the announcement.
Commenting on the pregnancy announcement, one fan wrote: "I thought you were pregnant before Christmas noticed bump ages ago."
While another added: "I knew it, the baggy jumpers gave it away," and a third said: "I knew you were pregnant weeks ago. Congratulations."
And a fourth eagle-eyed follower commented: "Suspected a while ago actually but thought you’d be waiting for a bit to announce."
The crafting queen recently shared her 2022 Christmas Card photo to her Instagram page, in which she posed with her children Rex and Rose and two of their pooches.
Some fans may have been quick to notice that in this snap Stacey had strategically placed her children and dogs in a position that completely hid her stomach from the shot.
And, in a number of other photos from over the Christmas period, the TV star had used sleighs and sledges to hide her bump, while also donning some rather loose and baggy jumpers.
Taking to Instagram, Stacey has now announced her pregnancy, sharing a sweet clip of herself surprising husband Joe Swash with the positive test.
Captioning this she wrote: "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 @realjoeswashy."
The announcement comes after Stacey sparked concern among fans after she was absent from the Loose Women Christmas party.
Many of the women took to social media throughout the party, with fans spotting Katie Piper, Christine Lampard, Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha, Jane Moore, Coleen Nolan, Dame Kelly Holmes, Frankie Bridge and Judi Love.
But while fans looked for a glimpse of her, Stacey was nowhere to be seen at the boozy festive lunch.
