“We love you all to the moon and back. Lots of love From Me, Joe, Harry, Zach, Leighton, Rex, and our little pickle.”
Stacey added in a series of videos posted on her Stories that she and Joe had been trying for another baby “for a really long time”.
“We decided we were so lucky already to have our boys,” she said.
“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.”
She added that after going for a check-up they were “so grateful to hear an extra heartbeat”.
As well as being father to Rex and step-dad to Stacey’s two sons, Joe has a son, Harry, from a previous relationship.
Joe, 39, proposed to Stacey on Christmas Eve and the couple are planning to get married in the grounds of their new cottage, which they moved into earlier this year.
