The black and white reel also panned on to the first look at her unborn baby on the hospital monitor.
The elated star had recently taken a break from social media but returned to share her amazing news with her loyal followers.
Stacey bravely opened up to say she had given up on having another baby after miscarrying in the past
She is currently a mum of three, with Zachary, 13 and Leighton, nine, from previous relationships, and two-year-old Rex, her first child with Joe.
Joe also has a son Harry, 13, from a previous relationship.
Sharing openly to her story, Stacey wrote: “Sorry I’ve been so quiet… but we have something we are excited to share with you… I feel so nervous for so many reasons…”
“For a really long time we’ve been trying for another pickle… It didn’t work out and this was out news quite a few times…
“We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys.
“It is our biggest privilege in life and we are so grateful to be parents so we stopped trying and counted ourselves so so so blessed already…”
The star continued: “For a while now I’ve felt so yuck and even though I thought about what it felt like I didn’t even want to go and check at first because well, just because, you know (I don’t even like to write it).
“But yesterday we went to check what was going on… And we were so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat my tummy…”
“So we told the boys and we’ve spent yesterday and today finishing the Wendy house ready to welcome a new pickle into our lives…”
She went on to thank her boys who fill their hearts ” so so so much they’re bursting” and call them “already the most incredible brothers we could have ever imagined raising…”.
And her Loose Women co-stars and famous friends have been quick to offer their congratulations to the happy couple and their growing family.
Among the well wishers was TV presenter Rochelle Humes, who penned: “SO over the moon for you.”
Rochelle’s bandmate in The Saturdays, Mollie King also wrote: “So happy for you!! Huge congratulations!”
