Pregnant Stacey Solomon appeared on Lorraine Kelly on Friday morning, where she opened up on the gender of her baby with boyfriend Joe Swash.
Glowing in a checked blue dress and white boots, 29 year old Stacey revealed that she is “curious” about having a girl.
Stacey is mum to sons, Zachary, 10 with Dean Cox, and Leighton, with Aaron Barham, while former EastEnders star Joe has son Harry, 11, with his ex Emma Sophocleous.
Stacey said of herself and Joe: “We feel so privileged Joe and I to be parents to another child. We have a house of boys.”
When quizzed by host Lorraine if she would like to welcome a girl, Stacey said: “I definitely am interested, you know you sort of have that curiosity about having a girl, but at the same time I feel like we’re really lucky just to be parents.
“Please God we have a healthy baby and everything goes well, and no mater what it is, boy or a girl, we’ll be over the moon.”

The Loose Women star also opened up about taking maternity leave, saying: “’I enjoy my work so much so that’ll keep me occupied, it’ll get to that point in pregnancy where I’ll be like ”when will it be over.
“People say I can’t take maternity leave but obviously I can but we have jobs that mean we could be out of work for the next six months but we are incredible privilege to be in a job we enjoy.
“I’m not planning on having loads of maternity leave, but I’m not going to have none.”
